CU tennis faces tough task vs. CSU in Sweet 16

Following a thrilling 5-4 victory over conference rival Midwestern State on the final day of April, the Cameron men's tennis team basked in the moment realizing it had won the South Central Regional for the fifth straight year.

With it came a spot in the Division II Nationals.

"It's been one of those weird weeks where you get a big win and everyone is excited," Cameron coach Josh Cobble said. "Then they had to transition from that to finals week and graduation while still trying to stay focused for this week. So they've done a really good job balancing all the attention that's been pulled on them."

Today, the Aggies face another tough challenge  this time on the biggest stage. The No. 21 Aggies (17-10) will be making their fifth straight appearance in the Sweet 16 today when they meet No. 3 Columbus State (23-3) at noon in Altamonte Springs, Fla.

"Columbus State has a lot of experience on the team and they're a team that's been around quite a bit. They've gotten better every year," Cobble said. "When you get to this stage  top 16 teams in the country and everybody has won their regional to get here  everybody has a chance to beat everybody."
