The Stetson men’s and women’s tennis teams will host Florida Gulf Coast on Saturday in the final home match of the season for both squads.  The men are scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m., while the women will start at approximately 2:00 p.m. from the Mandy Stoll Tennis Center.

Saturday will also be Senior Appreciation Day sponsored by Chick-fil-A.  The goal of the event is to not only recognize the hard work and dedication of seniors Didrik Berg, Jen Miller and Sara Lazarevic over the course of their careers at Stetson, but also to show appreciation to all Hatter fans in attendance.  Chick-fil-A has provided sandwiches for fans, which will be delivered around noon.

Already having clinched a berth in the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament, the men will begin the day by hosting the Eagles in their final match of the regular season.  The Hatters (14-3, 5-2) are currently in third place in the league standings, while FGCU (10-9, 4-3) sits just behind Stetson in fourth place.

The women will begin tentatively at 2:00 p.m., depending on how long the men’s match takes to finish.  All six teams competing in this year’s A-Sun Championship have already clinched, but Stetson (9-9, 4-3) will aim to improve its seeding with a win over FGCU (10-6, 4-3).  The two teams are currently tied for fourth in the league.

Fans unable to make it out to the Mandy Stoll Tennis Center on Saturday can follow along with all the action with live stats at, following @StetsonTennis on Twitter, or signing up for Hat-Alerts.
