In 2007, the Nebraska Wesleyan women won the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) regular season crown, as well as the NAIA Region III tournament title, and advanced to the NAIA Championships as a team for the first time since 1996.
The NWU men also won the GPAC regular season crown, but fell short of the national meet losing 5-3 in the NAIA Region III final. They finished 17-6 overall, the team’s best record since going 19-6 in 2003.
Combined, the Nebraska Wesleyan men and women have won nine conference regular season titles in tennis since the league became the GPAC in 2000.
