Mids to Face Colgate in League's Men's Tennis Tournament Opener
April 16, 2013
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- The Navy men's tennis team will face tournament-host Colgate in Friday's quarterfinal round of the Patriot League Tournament. The Mids, who garnered the No. 4 seed in the seven-team field, and the fifth-seeded Raiders will play Friday at 10 a.m.
Weather permitting, the matches will be contested outdoors on Colgate's Abrahamson Courts. If poor weather forces the matches to instead be played indoors, Drumlins Tennis Club in Syracuse will serve as the venue.
The winner of Friday's match between Navy and Colgate will face top-seeded Army Saturday at 10 a.m. in the semifinal round of the tournament. The winner of that contest will advance to Sunday's Noon championship match.
Friday's additional two quarterfinal round matches features No. 2 Lehigh playing No. 7 Holy Cross at 2 p.m. and No. 3 Bucknell taking on No. 6 Lafayette at 5 p.m.
