The Justin Stuckey era of McPherson College tennis gets under way this weekend with a three-day tournament in Lincoln, Neb.

This is the ITA Central Regional Tournament, which starts on Friday and wraps up on Sunday.

"The top players in the Central region will be playing in this tournament," Stuckey said. "The winner of the event will then be invited to play against the other seven regional winners and have the chance to become a national champion."

The entire Bulldog tennis squad will be participating in the tournament. The Mac women won the KCAC last season.

 Rafael Bulnes is seeded No. 2 in men's singles and fellow All-American Joan Marc Fajula-Rodriguez is ranked fourth. As a doubles team, they are ranked No. 1.

On the women's side, All-American Brooke Vorhees is ranked fourth and joins doubles partner Brittany Gourlay for the No. 3 seed in doubles.
