Commodores Set to Host NCAA Regionals

Vanderbilt will face Miami (Ohio) in first round

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt women’s tennis will enter the NCAA Tournament as the No. 8 overall seed and will host Miami (Ohio), Ohio State and Georgia Tech in round one this Friday at the Currey Tennis Center.

“We are thrilled to host. We’ve gotten to do that for a few years in a row now, it’s great to be home. Coming in eighth in the country with the schedule we play is quite an achievement,” said head coach Geoff Macdonald.

Vanderbilt recently competed in the SEC Championship, where it concluded its stint with a semifinal loss to eventual conference champion South Carolina, 4-1.

The Commodores open up the NCAA Tournament facing Mid-American Conference Tournament champion Miami (Ohio) on Friday at 3 p.m. CT.

The Dores face a 12-10 Red Hawk team coming off a win to capture the MAC title over Akron, 4-3.

Last season, Vanderbilt concluded the NCAA Championships as the national runner-up, falling in the title match to Stanford, 4-3, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

“It’s exciting. The team will be out of finals and it is a great time to buckle down and focus on tennis,” said Macdonald.

Admission to the regional tournament will be $5 for adults and $3 for youth. Children age 2 and under will be free.
