Crusaders Set to Host Mid-Con Tournament This Weekend at Brown Courts

Tuesday, April 19, 2005

Valparaiso enters this weekend's Mid-Continent Conference Women's Tennis Championship as the league's top seed and will host the event at Brown Courts on Friday and Saturday.

The Crusaders (13-4, 8-0 Mid-Con), the Mid-Con regular season champion for the second straight year, will meet fourth-seeded Oral Roberts (8-14, 5-3) at 10 a.m. on Friday in the first semifinal match. Valpo has won ten straight matches overall this season. The Crusaders defeated Oral Roberts 7-0 back on April 9.

Friday's second semifinal contest will match second-seeded IUPUI (13-8, 7-1) against the tournament's third seed Southern Utah (12-4, 6-2). The Jaguars posted a 4-3 victory over the Thunderbirds back on April 15.

The two semifinal winners will meet on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. for the tournament title and the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

In case of inclement weather, the championship will be moved to Matchpoint Tennis Club in Griffith, Ind. and the times will change.
