The four best singles players and top two doubles teams from the each school in the Sunshine State Conference and Gulf South Conference are all vying for a spot in the USTA Small College Championships in mid-October.

Competing for the Rollins men at the event this season are Jason Alabaster, fifth seeded Malte Christesen, third seeded Will Kwok and sixth seeded Robin Marchione. In doubles play, top seed Kwok and Alabaster will represent the Tars as well as Christesen and Marchione

For the women, Johanna Olsson, Taylor Brown, Shannon Etten and six seeded Elissa DeCampli are in the singles draw. In the doubles draw, DeCampli will pair with Ashley Loft while Etten and Brown are on the other side of the bracket.

A total of 48 singles players and 22 doubles teams make up the men's draw while 48 singles and 23 doubles are in the women's division.

Following the USTA/ITA South Regional Championship, the singles and doubles champions from Pensacola will advance to the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships on Oct. 10-13 at the Copeland-Cox Tennis Center in Mobile, Ala. The USTA/ITA National Small College Championships are comprised of the eight regional champions (and/or at-large selections) from NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community Colleges.

The USTA/ITA National Small College Championship is the only national championship event for singles and doubles at the NCAA Division II and NAIA levels. It is also the only tournament that combines all levels of Junior/Community College (NJCAA Divisions I and III and the California division). The singles and doubles champions at each divisional level will then compete to become the overall "Super Bowl" champions. The "Super Bowl" champions earn wild cards into the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships with the opportunity to win the culminating event held at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
