UNC Club Tennis Captures TOC Southern Title
Eight teams competing in the 2012 USTA Tennis On Campus Southern Championship in Auburn, Ala. Feb. 26 have earned bids to the national USTA Tennis On Campus Championship.
North Carolina’s "A" team won the championship by defeating Alabama. North Carolina’s "B" team defeated Elon in the Non-BCS division but did not receive a national bid because only one team can receive a bid from the same college or university.
