NORTH NEWTON, Kan.  It has been nearly half a decade since the women's tennis team has gone in to the conference tournament as a slight underdog, but that is the challenge the women will be facing as they look to win the conference championship/qualify for the national tournament for the 6th straight season.  The women are currently 9-3 on season, and are coming off a 2nd place regular season KCAC finish. 

The Thresher's will face the Ottawa University Braves in a 2 vs. 3 matchup Saturday morning at Maize South high school, first serve is scheduled for 9:00 a.m.  Win and the Thresher's will more than likely move on to take on McPherson College in a match that decides which team will take home the conference tournament title, and probably most importantly qualify for nationals in Mobile, Alabama.  McPherson College is the team that ended the Thresher's five-year run as conference champions earlier this season, defeating the Thresher's back on April 12th, by a score of 7-2.  The Thresher's however have been playing their best tennis of the season though of late, as they have been running through the conference un-blemished after that defeat back on April 12th.
