Pirates In Title Match! 5-1 AASU Wins Over West Florida
AASU picked up singles wins from Rafael Array at No. 4 singles, 6-3, 6-3 over Luis Arboleda and Christian Bergh, 7-5, 6-1, over Luis Bernardi to give the Pirates their first-ever berth in the NCAA Division II Men's Tennis Championship match!
Both teams will now play tomorrow against teams they've already beaten in the regular season in an effort to bring home two national championship trophies to Savannah. But as we've seen earlier in this tournament (especially in the Lynn men's match), beating a school twice in the same season is a very tough task. Not to mention that for both teams, this will be the fourth match in four days in humid Houston conditions. Weather tomorrow should be beautiful.
The last time a team won both the men's and women's DII tennis championships in the same year was BYU-Hawaii in 2003. Here's hoping the Pirates repeat that feat!
