The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's tennis team qualified for the NCAA Division II North Central Regional Tournament, the school learned Wednesday.

The tournament will be hosted by St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, Minn., on May 5-6. The Mountain Lions, who finished with a 9-7 record this season including a 1-1 mark in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Tournament, qualified for regionals by virtue of their No. 8 ranking in the April 27 Division II North Central Region poll.

The North Central Regional will be held as two four-team tournaments, one at St. Cloud State and the other at Southwest Baptist in Bolivar, Mo. The winners of each will advance to the NCAA Division II Championship Tournament, which will be held in Altamont Springs, Fla. On May 11-14.

UCCS will face host St. Cloud State, while two other RMAC schools, Colorado State-Pueblo and Nebraska-Kearney, will meet in the other semifinal. The winners of each will play eachother for the right to advance to the national tournament.

The Mountain Lions have been led this season by Jason Schultz (12-3 singles, 10-5 doubles), a junior from Albuquerque; Travis Sellentin (10-5 singles, 11-3 doubles), a senior from Kingwood, Texas; and Sean Voorhies (10-6 singles, 6-10 doubles), a junior from Monument, Colo.
