No. 1 seed Stetson cruised through three matches en route to the Atlantic Sun Championship, besting Jacksonville and then North Florida twice for their second straight title. The Hatters dropped just one of its 12 court pairings, a Court 4 loss to North Florida’s Madilyn McCarty/Nicole DeBolt in the championship match.
The top-six teams from the Atlantic Sun (ASUN) Conference entered the conference tournament, that will decide one bid for the NCAA Tournament.
