Cleveland, Ohio ? With two wins this weekend, Miami University won the MAC regular season title and earned the No. 1 seed for this year’s MAC Women’s Tennis Championship that is scheduled for April 23-26 on the campus of Bowling Green State University. The RedHawks fashioned a perfect 8-0 conference record.
At the No. 2 seed is the defending tournament champion Buffalo. The Bulls compiled a 6-2 mark, tied with 2008 regular season title holder Western Michigan. UB earned the No. 2 seed by virtue of its regular season win over the Broncos, who are the No. 3 seed.
