Tennis Teams Set to Host Rival ECU

The southeastern men's and women's tennis teams are set to welcome arch-rival East Central to the Southeastern Tennis Complex on Thursday, April 11 at 2 p.m.

Those two matchups will also be the final opportunity to catch an SE-ECU rivalry matchup in Durant this season.

If a tense rivalry matchup is not enough motivation to bring you to the court, Marco's Pizza has upped the ante and will be handing out 300 slices of pizza during the match for free.

The men come roaring into the meeting on a three-match winning streak with something to prove as it looks to improve its No. 46 national ranking against the Tigers who come into the matchup at No. 48 in the nation.

The contest is just as important regionally where the Storm are currently ranked fifth by the ITA while ECU is one spot back in sixth.

SE enters the matchup at 10-9 overall on the year and 0-1 in Great American Conference play, while the Tigers are 3-8 on the year and 0-1 in league play.

The Storm are flying high after snapping a losing skid with an 8-1 win at Texas-Permian Basin before picking up a win over No. 47 McMurry, 5-4, in Abilene, Texas.

SE closed out a long road trip by heading through Wichita, Kan., and downing Newman, 9-0.

The Southeastern women have head a little rougher time of it this season and enter the contest with a 6-10 record overall and a 2-2 mark in conference play, looking to break a four-match losing skid.

ECU comes to town with a 6-7 record overall and a 3-1 mark in GAC play.

Both teams will close out the regular season with Harding on April 15 at 1 p.m. in a match that will also serve as senior day.
