The Men’s and Women’s Southern Conference Tennis Championships return to the Champions Club in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 2023.
Chattanooga Men’s Tennis Regular Season Champions
The Chattanooga Mocs men’s tennis team captured its first ever Southern Conference regular season title behind a clean 7-0 sweep over UNCG on Saturday afternoon on the road in Greensboro, N.C.
Following the win, Chattanooga finishes the regular season 16-6 overall and 6-1 inside SoCon play to earn its first ever league season title since the honor began in 1992. The Mocs are outright champions and will be the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament after Samford dropped to two league losses following a Saturday loss at Mercer.
“These young men are just the greatest kids to be around. I am so proud of what they have been able to accomplish together,” said head coach Chuck Merzbacher following the regular season title accomplishment.
“We have won by playing as a team all year – with each guy doing whatever he can help the team. This is a historic moment for our program, and I couldn’t ask for a better bunch to lead.”
Chattanooga Women’s Tennis
The Chattanooga Mocs women’s tennis team wrapped up the Southern Conference regular season slate with a 5-2 victory over Western Carolina on the road in Cullowhee, N.C., on Sunday afternoon.
Following the win, Chattanooga finishes the regular season 14-7 overall and 3-4 inside SoCon action. UTC will head into next weekend’s SoCon Tournament as the No. 5 seed and will face No. 4 Mercer in the opening round.
