Tennis Adds Pair of Matches Ahead of Regional Tournament
MARYVILLE, Mo. - Head Coach Mark Rosewell has added a pair of matches for the Northwest Missouri State men's and women's tennis teams ahead of their appearances in the NCAA regional tournament next weekend.

The women will host No. 26 Drury Saturday at 1 p.m. in a meeting of two conference champions. The Bearcats won their 11th MIAA title and the Panthers were champions of the Great Lakes Valley Conference tournament last weekend.

He was a graduate assistant for Northwest in 2004 and 2005.
