UT Tyler Tennis Claims Championship, Ends Dynasty

The University of Texas at Tyler tennis team made history this weekend, taking their first American Southwest Conference championship. The Patriots defeated conference power Hardin-Simmons, which had won the title for six years on the men's side and seven years on the women's.

"It just feels great," tournament MVP Steven Campbell said. "We've worked all this time to get here. they've won it six years in a row, and now it's our turn to go and represent UT Tyler."

The Patriots will now advance to the Regionals in either California or Virginia. A win there would place them into the National Tournament.
