A congratulations is in order for our women’s tennis team on being picked in a preseason poll for the 2013 regular season title and league tournament championship.

Akron earned themselves five first-place votes in the poll. They also received four tallies toward a predicted win for the league tournament championship, hosted by Ball State from April 26-28. Akron has won seven of its eight matches, including a 4-3 win against Youngstown State on Thursday, March 7.

The Zips finished strong in second place in the league standings and have won the conference championship for the past two years.

UA is set to begin their MAC play on March 22 against Northern Illinois at 1 p.m. with the home advantage.
