Three Arkansas Tech University teams have been notified in recent days that their 2014-15 seasons will continue in NCAA postseason competition.

The Golden Suns tennis team has earned a bid to the NCAA Division II Central Regional in Bolivar, Mo. Arkansas Tech is the No. 5 seed and will face No. 4 seed East Central University in the first round at 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 3.

Tech is making its third NCAA Division II Tournament appearance in tennis. The Golden Suns previously earned an NCAA Tournament bid in 2002 and 2014. They won an NCAA Tournament match for the first time when they defeated Harding University in the 2014 first round.

Arkansas Tech has also earned a 2015 NCAA postseason berth in both men’s and women’s golf.

The Wonder Boys golf team will compete in the NCAA Division II Central/Midwest Regional May 4-6 at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont, Ill. It is the third consecutive NCAA regional men’s golf appearance for Arkansas Tech. The Wonder Boys also reached NCAA postseason play in golf in 1998, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2009 and 2010.

Luke Calcatera is Arkansas Tech head men’s golf coach.

The Golden Suns golf team will play in the NCAA Division II Central Regional May 3-5 at Hillcrest Country Club in Bartlesville, Okla. Arkansas Tech had never earned an NCAA bid in women’s golf before 2013. Now, the Golden Suns have made three consecutive NCAA regional appearances.
