The College of Lake County women’s tennis team won the National Junior College Athletic Association Region IV championship, following a first-place finish among seven teams competing at a regional tournament held Oct. 12-13 in Palos Heights, Ill.
The Lancers, who finished the regular season in second place after losing a single match to Skyway Conference champion Waubonsee Community College, avenged their loss by defeating Waubonsee in the tournament’s final match. The Lancers will compete next May in the NJCAA Division I national championship tournament in Tyler, Tex.
“The women did a great job this season,” said Head Coach Jim Love, who was voted the Region IV Coach of the Year in 2018 and Conference Coach of the Year in 2017. “In the regional tournament, every player won critical matches and contributed points to help win the championship. And win or lose, they display good sportsmanship. They are very respectful of each other and of their opponents.”
