The 2013 Golden State Athletic Conference Tennis Championships will take place at the famed Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, Calif, April 10-12.  This is a GSAC Tournament of firsts – the first-ever in such an elite venue, and the first conference tournament since 1999.
 

All six conference schools with tennis programs will be represented in the single-elimination tournament. 

 

On the women' side, regular-season GSAC Champion Westmont is the No. 1 seed.  The Warriors, who went 10-0 in conference play, are ranked No. 7 in the NAIA and will receive a first-round bye.  No. 2-seed Concordia, which is ranked No. 9 nationally, will also receive a first-round bye. 

 

In the men's tournament the No. 1 seed is GSAC Champion Vanguard, which is ranked No. 3 in the NAIA and is undefeated this year with a perfect  19-0 mark (10-0 in the GSAC).  No. 2-seed Westmont is ranked No. 5 nationally and will receive a first-round bye along with Vanguard. 

 

The tournament seeding is based on each team's finish in the conference final regular-season standings.  The No. 3 seed for the women is Vanguard and for the men is Concordia.  Hope International, Arizona Christian and Biola are the number 4, 5 and 6 seeds in both tournaments, respectively.   The Firestorm of Arizona Christian is competing in its inaugural season. 

 

Tournament results will be available at GSAC Tennis Championships and on the schedule pages for each sport.  Admission to this event is free throughout the tournament.
