DURHAM, N.C. (May 8, 2014) - Making its fourth NCAA Championship appearance, and second in the past four seasons, the ETSU women's tennis team will take on fourth-seeded and fifth-ranked Duke in Durham, N.C., Friday, May 9 in the opening round of the 2014 Women's Tennis Championship.

The Bucs (14-8), winners of 11 of their last 12 matches, clinched a berth in the NCAA Championship after beating Stetson, 4-0, in the final of the Atlantic Sun Women's Championship. ETSU has now won an A-Sun title twice in the past four seasons, and four times overall.

Fifth-ranked Duke, a winner of 16 of its last 19 matches, will enjoy home-court advantage during the first weekend of postseason play. The Blue Devils (24-4) finished runner-up to No. 7 Virginia in the ACC Championship Tournament en route to clinching the program's 25th consecutive NCAA Championship bid.
