KISSIMMEE, Fla.- After consecutive days of inclement weather in North Florida, the Palm Beach Atlantic University tennis teams, along with the Lindenwood University squads, opted to sit Thursday afternoon’s scheduled matches out after tornado warnings, heavy rain, and damaging winds threatened the surrounding Kissimmee area. Slated for a 3:30 pm start at a neutral site near the Orlando area, both universities reached an agreement to reschedule for another day.
The new date was quickly settled, and the men's teams will face each other tomorrow afternoon, April 1st, on PBA’s home court at Gaines Park in West Palm Beach, Florida. That matchup is slated for a 2 pm start.
With only a few regular-season matches remaining for either team, the Sailfish look to end the year strong, starting with a battle against the visiting LU Lions.
