Live Coverage: RadioTennis.com's
College Tennis Week "Midwest Showcase"
RadioTennis.com is pleased to announce live coverage of five collegiate dual matches within a seven day period (2/20 - 2/27).
"RadioTennis.com is traveling to the Midwest region of the United States for some big-time indoor college tennis," states RadioTennis.com's Ken Thomas.
"So much attention is given to college teams in the southern and western parts of the United States that many tennis fans simply assume that all of the top teams are located in those areas: however, that's not really the case. For example, Northwestern's women's team, located out of Evanston Illinois, is the #1 team in the country and they just won the prestigious Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Team Indoor Championships. Notre Dame's women's team is ranked #17 in the country. Michigan's men's team is ranked #34 in the country. These are powerhouse programs."
"Then you look at the other teams scheduled for this web cast, Butler, Xavier, Western-Michigan, and Michigan State. All of these programs have made great strides towards national recognition. All of these programs play tough schedules, have talent in their lineups, have good facilities and are coached by dedicated professionals. College tennis is alive and well in the Midwest."
"If that's not enough to make you log-on, the University of North Carolina and Stanford University men's teams are also part of this web cast. North Carolina is currently ranked #22 in the country and is one of the favorites to win the tough ACC Conference. And Stanford, currently ranked #9 in the country, is still one of the classiest tennis programs in the United States, with an amazing 18 NCAA team titles (and by the way...is where John McEnroe played his college ball)."
The web cast schedule is as follows:
- 2/20: North Carolina vs. Michigan: AnnArbor, MI (men)
- 2/21: Northwestern vs. Notre Dame: South Bend, IN (women)
- 2/23: Butler vs. Xavier: Cincinnati, OH (women)
- 2/25: Stanford vs. Michigan: Ann Arbor, MI (men)
- 2/26: Michigan State vs. Western Michigan: Kalamazoo, MI: (women)
"You put all of this talent together and you truly have a week of showcase tennis. I would like to invite the international tennis community to log-on and checkout RadioTennis.com's College Tennis Week - Midwest Showcase. You won't be disappointed."
