The UNCW men's tennis team is going for the national title

WILLIAMSBURG, V.A. (WECT) - The top-seeded UNCW Men’s tennis team defeated William & Mary Sunday to win the 2021 CAA championship. The 4-3 victory secured the Seahawks’ seventh CAA title and third in the last four years.

The team is now 15-5 and will learn their seeding for the NCAA tournament Monday night during the NCAA Selection Show.
