INDIANAPOLIS – The Georgia College women’s tennis squad (13-10) has earned a bid to the NCAA Tournament once again, making it 18 consecutive years since missing the dance.

The winner of that match will take on the winner of No. 3-seed Francis Marion University (17-3) and No. 6-seed Wingate University (18-4) Monday, April 30. 

The Cougars topped the Bobcats in their regular season affair 8-1 back on March 25 in Milledgeville, Ga.
