JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (October 16, 2008) - After competing against some of the top teams in the nation this fall, the ETSU men's tennis team will continue that trend this weekend, as the Bucs travel to the USTA/TA Regional Championships.

 

The four-day event will take place on the campus of the University of North Carolina, in Chapel Hill, N.C.
