The opponents for the McPherson College tennis teams in the upcoming NAIA National Championships have been announced.

The Mac men will face San Diego Christian College at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 16, in Mobile, Ala. McPherson is 11-3 on the season and ranked No. 21 in the country. 

San Diego Christian is just 6-10, but actually ranked higher than the Bulldogs at No. 13 in the country as it played a brutal schedule against many nationally ranked teams.

Ironically, the teams were to have played against each other when Mac was in California on a spring break trip, but the match was postponed by rain.

The Mac women will have to overcome the hometown crowd as they have drawn the University of Mobile at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 16. Mac is 9-2 on the year and ranked No. 22 in the country. Mobile is a sparkling 22-4 and ranked No. 11.

The tournament continues on Wednesday, May 17.
