NEC TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCHES WASHED OUT
West Windsor, NJ -- The menís and womenís title matches at the 2003 Northeast Conference Tennis Championships were washed out due to rain and inclement weather in the local area. The tournament has been postponed until tomorrow, with play scheduled to resume at the Mercer County Tennis Center in West Windsor, NJ.
The menís championship will begin at 10:00 am, with three-time defending champion and top-seed UMBC taking on #2 seed Fairleigh Dickinson. FDU will look to avenge a 4-0 setback to the Retrievers in the 2002 menís title match.
The womenís championship is slated for 12:00 pm as #1 seed UMBC will shoot for its fifth straight NEC crown when it meets archrival and #2 seed Quinnipiac.

The winner of both the menís and womenís NEC Championship will represent the conference in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
