The Miami University tennis team hosts Western Michigan University and Bowling Green State University this weekend. The match against Bowling Green is the RedHawks' final match before the Mid-American Conference Championship.

The RedHawks (13-6, 5-1 MAC) are riding a three-match winning streak and are feeling confident.

"We have a lot of confidence going into this weekend," senior Nimisha Mohan said. "It will be an exciting match because we are playing Bowling Green and Western Michigan, and it is senior day."

Mohan and senior Christian Raymond will both be honored before Saturday's match against the Falcons.

Bowling Green's (10-6, 4-2 MAC) only two MAC losses came against the University of Toledo and Eastern Michigan University - two teams Miami just beat this past weekend.

The Falcons enter the weekend riding a four-match win streak.

Western Michigan (13-9, 2-4 MAC) was defeated by Toledo and Eastern Michigan within the last three weeks. The Broncos have lost four of their last six matches.

"Right now were leading in the conference," Raymond said. "Our goal is to keep our mind focused on each match, and not take anyone lightly especially on senior day."

The RedHawks hold a half-game lead over Eastern Michigan. They can clinch an outright MAC title with a pair of wins this weekend. The 'Hawks control their own destiny.

The RedHawks host Western Michigan 1 p.m. Friday at the Hepburn Varsity Tennis Courts. Senior day is Saturday at 1 p.m., where Raymond and Mohan will be honored before the match against Bowling Green.
