NEW HAVEN, Conn. (July 31, 2018) -- Concordia College will serve as the host institution for the final of the 2019 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Men's Tennis Championship, as announced on Tuesday by Commissioner Dan Mara. The championship final will be staged on Saturday, April 27, between the two finalists at the Meyers Tennis Center on the Concordia campus in Bronxville, N.Y. The facility boasts both indoor and outdoor courts.
The 2019 CACC Tournament will have a new format, as the top-three teams in the standings following the completion of the regular season will advance to the postseason. The No. 1 seed/regular season champion will receive a bye into the championship final on the 27th, while the No. 2 & No. 3 seeds will square off in a first-round match at the site of the highest seed on Tuesday, April 23.
Concordia College, under the guidance of head coach Neil Tarangioli, will enter the 2019 men's season as not only the host program for the championship, but also the defending league champs. The Clippers returned to varsity competition in 2018 -- following a one-year hiatus -- and captured the CACC crown by knocking off 2017 champ Chestnut Hill College in the league final.
