EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – The NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Tournament kicks off Friday with SIUE taking on Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tennessee.
SIUE, 21-0 this season, won its second straight Ohio Valley Conference title and now faces Vanderbilt for the second straight season in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The match is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. at the Currey Tennis Center.
"This is a very special moment that should be enjoyed," said SIUE Head Coach Nick Mueller.
Vanderbilt, the Southeastern Conference champions, are the No. 4 seed nationally. The Commodores hold a 20-5 dual record.
Aranda holds a 19-6 singles record, including a 17-2 mark in No. 1 singles matches. Frogner has a 20-7 singles record, including a 16-3 mark in No. 2 singles matches.
"They have been fantastic," said Mueller. "We would not be 21-0 without the two of them. They have left an impression on this program."
