Last Saturday the VCSU Viking Club Tennis team hosted its 4th annual USTA Tennis On Campus Fall Series Tournament and pulled out a first place finished by 1 point over NDSU. With four schools, eight teams, and a total of 40 participants, this was the largest home tournament ever hosted by VCSU. Play was delayed from a 9:00 am start to 11:00am due to cold temperatures and ice on the courts, but overall the weather cooperated and three out of the four scheduled rounds were completed. Final results after the three rounds:
1st - VCSU A - 73 points
2nd - NDSU A - 72 points
3rd - UND A - 62 points
4th - Concordia - 39 points
5th - NDSU B
6th - VCSU B
7th - Concordia B
8th - UND B
The VCSU Club Tennis team is now 2-0 on the season with two first place finishes in the USTA Fall Series Tournaments. Next action for the club team will be this weekend in Northfield, MN at the Carleton Knights tournament.
Full match details will be posted to Viking Club Tennis website
