WASHINGTON - The No. 52 George Washington men's tennis team, champion of the Atlantic 10 Conference, will head to Chapel Hill, N.C., on Saturday, May 10 to face No. 29 South Carolina in the first round of the NCAA Regionals.
GW (17-6) earned its third-ever automatic bid to the NCAA Team Championship after knocking off No. 50 VCU, 4-1, in the 2014 A-10 title match on April 20. The Colonials will match up with the Gamecocks (15-13) on Saturday, May 10 at 9 a.m., at the Tarheels' Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center.
Host and seventh-seeded UNC will face South Carolina State at 12 p.m. following the GW-South Carolina tilt, and the winners of Saturday's first-round matches will go head-to-head on Sunday, May 11 at 1 p.m. for the chance to earn a berth to the NCAA Round of 16. The Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Ga., will play host to the 12-day men's and women's combined event, which runs from May 15-26, 2014.
Tickets for the NCAA Chapel Hill Regional are $5, and children six and under get in for free. Gates will open one hour prior to play on both Saturday and Sunday.
On Monday, GW was honored with a program-record 10 Atlantic 10 postseason accolades, which were highlighted by Head Coach Greg Munoz's third Coach of the Year nod and junior Francisco Dias' second Most Outstanding Performer award of his career. All six members of the Colonials' lineup were named to an All-Conference Team, as Dias, senior Nikita Fomin, freshman Julius Tverijonas and sophomore Danil Zelenkov were named to the First Team, seniors Viktor Svensson and Ulrik Thomsen earned a spot on the Second Team, and Thomsen and Zelenkov earned All-Academic Team honors.
