The Tuskegee University athletic department will file a formal letter of complaint with the NCAA in the wake of the school’s appearance in the South Region-1 Division II women’s tennis tournament.
The tournament was hosted by Barry University, No. 2 in Division II this year and the defending national champion, was scheduled for April 29-30 in Miami Shores, Fla. However, rain delayed play for two days and the tournament wasn’t completed until May 2. Tuskegee, the SIAC champion, forfeited its first-round match with Barry because team members – including three graduating seniors – needed to return to school for final exams which began May 2.
