MILWAUKEE, Wis. (naccsports.org) --- Edgewood College put the wraps on a second consecutive Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) women's tennis crown Saturday (Oct. 12) with 9-0 road victories over Concordia University Chicago and Dominican University.

The title is the ninth overall for the Eagles, most among NACC schools. Edgewood won or shared seven consecutive crowns from 2008-14, then ended a three-year run by Concordia Wisconsin with another title last season.

Along with the outright conference championship, Edgewood has secured the top seed and a first-round bye for next spring's NACC Women's Tennis Tournament. The Eagles and No. 2-seed Concordia Wisconsin, which earned the other first-round bye, advance directly to the tournament semifinals slated for Sunday, May 3, 2020, at Nielsen Tennis Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin. The tournament championship match will be held later that day, also at Nielsen Tennis Center.

The other two spots in the semifinals will be filled by the winners of first-round contests held Monday, April 27, 2020. Third-seeded Illinois Tech will host sixth-seeded Wisconsin Lutheran in one first-round match, while fourth-seeded MSOE entertains fifth-seeded Marian. The draw will be reseeded following the first round with Edgewood facing the lowest remaining seed in its semifinal matchup.

The NACC Tournament champion receives the conference's automatic berth in the 2020 NCAA Division III Women's Tennis Championship.
