The University of Miami men's tennis team received a bid to the 2018 NCAA Team Championship, as announced on the NCAA selection show Tuesday evening. The Hurricanes (14-12, 4-8 ACC), who will compete at the national stage for the 23rd time in program history, will remain in-state and travel to Gainesville, Fla., to face in-state foe, North Florida, in the opening round Saturday, May 12. Miami is ranked No. 39, while the Ospreys are unranked.
It took five hours and 28 minutes, but the Hurricanes departed with a win Sunday evening– exactly what head coach Jim Morris and his team were looking for.
In a game that featured a near two-hour rain delay, eight pitching changes and 28 combined hits, junior Romy Gonzalez walked it off for the Hurricanes in a 12-11 win to cap a weekend sweep of Bethune-Cookman at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.
The Miami women's golf team plays in the NCAA Austin Regional Monday through Wednesday at the par-72, 6,341-yard University of Texas Golf Club in Austin, Texas. Making their sixth straight trip to an NCAA Regional under head coach Patti Rizzo, the Canes are attempting to advance to the NCAA Championships for the third straight year and the 26th time in program history.
