CC Tournament History: Franklin & Marshall has won 13 conference championships dating back to 1985 but has yet to win a tournament match since the current format was adopted in 2006. The Diplomats make a return to the playoffs for the fourth straight season, after falling to Dickinson by a 5-3 score in last season's First Round matchup.

F&M last won the championship in 2000, capping off a run of eight-straight titles.

Team Championships: Johns Hopkins 10, Franklin & Marshall 7, Swarthmore 5, Muhlenberg 2, Gettysburg 1, Washington College 1

A Look at the Field: No. 1 seed Johns Hopkins enters the tournament looking for its 12th consecutive championship. Swarthmore (No. 2) is seeking its sixth CC Title and first since 2006 while Haverford has never claimed a CC Crown. 

The Projected Lineup

No. 1 Singles – Allison Wolters 

Wolters has been dominant throughout the year at No. 1 and is currently ranked No. 21 in the ITA Atlantic South Region.

No. 3 Singles – Sarah Haas 

Haas holds a 7-7 record but is 5-3 in the CC at the No. 3 spot in the singles lineup.

No. 4 Singles – C.J. Rummelsburg 

Rummelsburg has made noise throughout the season at the No. 4 spot in the order and holds an impressive 12-5, 7-2 CC record. She enters the CC Semifinals playing some of her best tennis of late, with an 8-2 record in her last 10.

No. 5 Singles – Gavriel Rubenstein

Rubenstein has registered a 13-3 overall record on the year, good for the highest win percentage on the team. She has registered a 5-1 CC mark and has won eight out of her last 10.

No. 6 Singles – Alex Collins 

With a 14-5 overall record and a 6-3 mark in the CC, Collins has been an anchor for the bottom of the Diplomats' order throughout her sophomore campaign.

Haas and Rummelsburg are on fire at No. 2 with a 9-1 record in their last 10 doubles matchups, while accumulating an 11-3, 7-1 CC record on the year.
