Written by: Michael Brown, Assistant A.D. for Communications

MOBILE, Ala.- The Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s tennis team shook off any potential rust that might have accumulated over the past few weeks from non-action by sweeping a pair of opponents in the first round of the NCCAA National Tournament on Tuesday. The Sailfish first knocked off Olivet Nazarene University while finishing their day with another 5-0 sweep of Campbellsville University.

Coming in as the defending NCCAA National Champions, the Sailfish (18-6) will look to take the No. 1-ranking from pool play on Wednesday as they take on Azusa Pacific (Ca.) University at 9 am.
