Bulldogs set to compete at SEC Tennis Championships

April 16, 2014

Per Nilsson has rejuvenated a Mississippi State tennis program in his six years as the head coach.
Nilsson takes his Bulldogs into a place today where they haven't found success since he was a player at State.
No. 17 MSU opens the Southeastern Conference Championship against the No. 55 LSU Tigers. The match is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at Vanderbilt's Currey Tennis Center in Nashville, Tenn.
The Bulldogs last SEC Championship came in 1993 when they tied host school Georgia with a score of 12.5 to split the championship. Nilsson was a junior in 1993 and was an integral part of that team. 
"Yeah, we definitely are," Nilsson said of his team was capable of winning it all this week. "It's such a close league this year with maybe one or two teams that are sneaking away from everybody else. Everyone can beat everyone. It's the team that gets hot. We've just got to play our best tennis to do it."
