The event was originally scheduled to be at Hilton Head, S.C. but was announced on Wednesday that it will now be hosted in Athens, Ga. due to Hurricane Ian.
The Sea Pines College Tournament will feature 29 student-athletes from five universities. Both Friday and Saturday matches will begin at 9 a.m. CT. Live scoring will be determined by if the matches are being played at Henry Field Stadium or Lindsey Hopkins Indoor. Match results will be updated to a tournament landing page.
