Embrace the Victory: Skyhawks Enter NE10 Women's Tennis Championship as Top Seed



MANSFIELD, Mass. – The Stonehill Skyhawks have earned the top seed in the upcoming Northeast 10 Conference Women's Tennis Championship after winning the league's regular season crown on Saturday, as the conference office announced its championship seedings this past weekend.  

For seedings and matchups for the 2018 NE10 Women's Tennis Championship, please see below.

Stonehill garnered the top seed and a first-round bye after going 11-0 in conference play this fall. The Skyhawks, who have fallen in each of the past three title matches to Adelphi, ran the table in the regular season with 11 straight victories.

Merrimack claimed the two-seed with a 9-2 conference record, losing to only Stonehill and Adelphi. The Panthers, three-time defending NE10 champions, enter as the three-seed and will host Assumption on Wednesday afternoon in First Round action. 

In addition to Adelphi and Assumption's match, fourth-seeded Le Moyne welcomes fifth-seeded New Haven on Wednesday. The winner of the match will travel to play the Skyhawks on Friday - the scheduled day for both semifinals matchups.
