ELGIN, Ill. - - - The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics released the first Coaches' Top 25 poll for men's tennis February 14th, and for the first time in recorded history the men's tennis team is receiving votes in first NAIA poll of the season.
Over the last few years, the men's tennis team has risen to various season rankings of the Top 10 programs within the NCCAA, but this is a first time votes have been received for the NAIA. The men's team has grabbed the North Central Regional Championship for the NCCAA and advanced to the NCCAA National Championships during their previous two seasons. The team is working throughout this season to try and make it three straight appearances. They are off to a great start towards accomplishing that goal while currently 8-2 as they enter into their final three matches before heading to Orlando, Florida for spring break competition. The Eagles will face some tough teams from across the country during the full week of action. Congrats go out to Coach Moment and his Eagles for this recognition.
