For the first time since 2008, the UNC women's tennis team will be competing in the Big Sky Conference Championship, against Sacramento State, which is ranked No. 59 in the nation.
The University of Northern Colorado will be the No. 4 seed, while the Hornets will be the top seed.
Freshman Chrissie Hoolahan has been the anchor in singles competition for the Bears (9-8, 5-3 Big Sky) this season with only one loss in conference play. Her sole singles loss during conference play was April 7 when she faced Precious Gbadamosi of Montana. The University of Montana (13-7, 6-2) is going into the semifinals as the No. 3 seed, facing No. 2 Northern Arizona (10-12, 7-1).
Sacramento State (15-9, 8-0) defeated the Bears, 6-1, when the two teams played one another Sunday in Greeley. Hoolahan gave UNC its only point for the match by winning in two sets, 6-0, 6-0, against freshman Andrea Gomez Carus.
The Hornets are looking for their 11th consecutive Big Sky Conference title and have  won 90 Big Sky matches in a row. 
Montana defeated Montana State, 6-1, Sunday, getting the Bears into the tournament after the Bears' loss. The Bears lost to both Montana and Northern Arizona this season with scores of 7-0 and 5-2, respectively.
The doubles team of Hoolahan and junior Jennifer Buchanan fared the best against the Hornets but still lost, 8-5, to Carus and her partner Sophie Lohsceidt.
