On Thursday, the NCAA announced the selection of Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Colleges and the Biszantz Family Tennis Center as the hosts for the 2014 NCAA Division III Men's and Women's Tennis Championships.
CMS will host the event May 19-24, 2014, marking the third time since 2009 that CMS will have hosted the NCAA team and individual championships. CMS hosted the men's championships in 2009 and then the inaugural combined men's and women's championships in 2011.
Ethan Walker, NCAA Coordinator for Championships and Alliances, who was at the 2009 and 2011 Championships hosted by CMS said, "The Division III Men's and Women's Tennis Committees are thrilled to be going back to Claremont. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps has proven to be a tremendous host in the past and we know they will do whatever it takes to make sure all the student-athletes have the experience of a lifetime."
CMS Director of Athletics Mike Sutton added, " I'm excited for the championship and we look forward to having the NCAA Division III tennis community back in Claremont. We will make every effort to provide the best championship environment and experience for the student-athletes and their families and friends who support them."
The award winning Biszantz Family Tennis Center was named the 2010 USTA Outstanding Facility of the Year for an educational institution. The tennis center features twelve (12) Plexipave courts with professional standard lighting and permanent seating, as well as a team room and player lounge, locker rooms, and observation deck.
The 2013 NCAA Division III Men's and Women's Championships will be held May 20-25, 2013 in Kalamazoo, Michigan hosted by Kalamazoo College.
