McPherson College’s nationally ranked tennis teams will try to double up in the KCAC Postseason Tournament that begins on Friday in Topeka at the Kossover Tennis Complex.

Both Mac teams won the regular season title with 8-0 conference records. The Mac men, ranked No. 21 in the country, face off against Southwestern in one 2 p.m. semifinal, while No. 2 seed Bethany takes on Kansas Wesleyan. 

The winners meet at 2 p.m. Saturday for the championship, which carries with it an automatic berth to nationals.

The 23rd-ranked Mac women clash with Bethel at 9 a.m. Friday, with the other semi matching No. 2 seed Southwestern and Tabor. The championship match is 9 a.m. Saturday.

Both Mac teams won the postseason tournament last year to advance to nationals. The Mac women also were the regular season champion last year. Bethany was the men’s regular-season champion last year.
