Both the VCU men’s golf team and the women’s tennis team entered their respective Atlantic 10 tournaments this past weekend as No. 1 seeds.
As the 2013-14 men’s tennis regular season wraps up, teams across the conference are preparing for the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship to be played April 17-20 at Boar’s Head Sports Club in Charlottesville, Va.
The VCU’s women’s basketball team improved its record to 20-7 on the season after beating St. Bonaventure University 74-57 on Feb. 19. But with just one game remaining on the schedule, head coach Marlene Stollings’ team is beginning to prepare for the Atlantic 10 tournament.
One year after five Atlantic 10 teams advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament, the mid-major conference entered the 2013-14 basketball season with lowered expectations.
A 2-1 victory at St. Bonaventure University on Friday, Nov. 8 gave the VCU men’s soccer team its second consecutive victory and propelled head coach Dave Giffard’s team into sole possession of second place in the Atlantic 10 less than one week away from the conference tournament.
