Islanders men's tennis headed to Baylor for NCAA Championships

The No. 70 Texas A&M - Corpus Christi men's tennis team found out its NCAA destination on Tuesday afternoon after watching the selection show on NCAA.com. The Islanders will travel to Waco for the May 13-14 regional round of the NCAA Championships at No. 5 Baylor.

In addition to Texas A&M - Corpus Christi and host Baylor, No. 22 Texas Tech and No. 43 Rice will also be competing in the regional draw. A total of 64 teams qualified for the tournament with 16 regionals comprised of four teams each playing on the first weekend on the tournament.

The 16 winners will then advance to the final championship site in Palo Alto, Calif. from May 19-30 on the campus of Stanford.

The Islanders met Baylor earlier in the season with the Bears taking the dual match in Waco.
