MEDIA REMINDER: Nebraska Wesleyan University does not give athletic scholarships or sign national letters of intent.
In 2006, the Nebraska Wesleyan men went 16-13 and shared the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) regular season title. The men went on to win the GPAC Tournament and the NAIA Region III Tournament in order to qualify for the NAIA Championships.
The NWU women finished 16-11 and swept both the GPAC regular season and tournament crowns before claiming runner-up honors at the Region III tourney.
The Prairie Wolves return nearly everyone this fall; the NWU women had just two seniors in 2006, while the men had none. Harley was named Hauff Mid-America Sports/GPAC Men’s Tennis Coach of the Year and shared the honor for the women.
