SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Southern Conference announced the pairings and times for the 2019 Southern Conference Men’s Tennis Championship on Saturday. ETSU won the league’s regular-season crown and earned the top seed in the eight-team tournament that will be held Thursday, April 18, through Saturday, April 20, at the John Drew Tennis Center in Macon, Georgia.

The Bucs, the 2018 tournament champions, will play The Citadel, the No. 8 seed, on Thursday at 1 p.m. The other quarterfinal in the top half of the bracket features No. 4 Wofford against No. 5 Samford, also at 1 p.m. The Terriers beat the Bulldogs 4-0 on March 1.

Furman earned the No. 2 seed and will take on No. 7 UNCG on Thursday at 3 p.m. The Paladins finished conference play 6-1, losing only to ETSU. In the regular-season matchup with UNCG, Furman won 6-1. Chattanooga is the No. 3 seed and will face No. 6 Mercer at 3 p.m. The Bears emerged victorious, 4-3, in the earlier meeting. 

Wofford hosts The Citadel on Sunday but the seeds are locked regardless of the outcome.
