Seahawks Capture Men's Tennis Crown

No. 1 seed UNCW won the doubles point and added three singles victories to defeat No. 3 Elon 4-1 in the championship match of the 2023 Colonial Athletic Association Men's Tennis Championship on Sunday at William & Mary's McCormack-Nagelsen Tennis Center.
The Seahawks, 17-7, have won three consecutive conference championships and nine titles overall (2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2021, 2022, 2023). It marked the second straight year that UNCW has beaten Elon, 15-9, in the finals.
UNCW earned the CAA's automatic berth to the NCAA Regionals. It will be the program's 10th appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Seahawks, who will learn their postseason destination and opponent during the NCAA's special selection show on Monday night, competed in the Raleigh Regionals last May.
Playing indoors due to rain in the area, the match was a tight one early before the Seahawks pulled away. UNCW won the doubles point for the 11th time this season and relied on its depth in singles to nail down the win.
"Playing two of the three matches in the tournament indoors shows what kind of team we have," said UNCW Head Coach Mait DuBois. "The guys just stepped up to the challenge. We always have a battle with Elon. They play hard and have talented players. We've enjoyed the rivalry…it brings out the best in both teams. We'll be excited about playing in the NCAA Tournament."
