The No. 6 nationally ranked Brenau University tennis team finished second in the Southern States Athletic Conference Championship April 23, losing only to NCAA-bound Auburn University-Montgomery.
“Our conference is one of the toughest in the NAIA, so we knew going in it would be very difficult,” said Brenau Head Coach Andre Ferreira. “AUM is a very talented team, and I am very pleased with the improvements our girls have made.”
Prior to matches against AUM, the Golden Tigers shut out Martin Methodist 9-0 in the tournament quarterfinals April 22 and beat Middle Georgia State College 5-2 in semifinals play April 23.
Brenau currently possesses a 16-6 record and will return to Mobile May 15 for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics championships.
