After recording a program record seven conference wins, the Liberty women's tennis team has earned the No. 3 seed for the upcoming 2014 Big South Women's Tennis Championship. The Lady Flames (7-2 Big South) will square off against No. 6 seed Radford (4-5 Big South) in the quarterfinals on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. in Boiling Springs, N.C.

Earlier this season, on April 2, Liberty defeated Radford, 6-1, on the road. The Lady Flames have won each of the last five meetings between the Commonwealth schools, including a 4-0 shutout in the first round of the 2011 Big South tournament. 

Charleston Southern earned the No. 1 seed after capturing the Big South regular-season championship with a perfect 9-0 ledger in conference clashes. No. 56 ranked Winthrop finished the year with just one loss and eight wins in Big South play to claim the No. 2 position. Campbell follows Liberty with the No. 4 seed after tallying a 6-3 league record.

Coastal Carolina posted a 5-4 Big South mark and garnered the No. 5 seed. Following No. 6 seed Radford is UNC Asheville (3-6 Big South) at No. 7 and Gardner-Webb (2-7 Big South) at No. 8.

Longwood (1-8 Big South) and Presbyterian College (0-9 Big South) round out the seedings in the No. 9 and No. 10 spots, respectively.
