No. 5 Men’s Tennis Earns At-Large Bid to NCAA Tournament

No. 5 Men’s Tennis Earns At-Large Bid to NCAA Tournament

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – For just the second time in program history, the No. 5 Wesleyan men's tennis team has advanced to the NCAA Division III Tournament, as the Cardinals earned an at-large bid. Wesleyan will travel to No. 24 Johns Hopkins and have a first-round bye, before taking on the winner of the John Carroll/Franciscan matchup.

The Cardinals have a 14-4 overall record, while finishing the regular-season with a 7-2 conference mark. Wesleyan was the second-seed in the NESCAC tournament, but was edged 5-3 by top-seeded Middlebury.

In 2017, Wesleyan made a run in the NCAA Tournament, before eventually falling to Claremont-Mudd-Scripps in the NCAA Quarterfinal action. The 2017 season was a historic one for the Cardinals, as they recorded a program-record 15 wins and reached the postseason for the first time in school history.   

Wesleyan will also wait to hear about the NCAA Division III tennis individual selections, as they will be announced on Wednesday, May 8th around 7:00 p.m. Last year, the Cardinals set a program record with five individual (men's and women's) NCAA Championship berths.  

A full preview with match times will be available on athletics.wesleyan.edu shortly, and for up-to-date information on all Wesleyan Athletics, you can follow us on Twitter at @Wes_Athletics or sign up for the Wesleyan Front Row mobile app on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
