Two members of the McHenry County College men's tennis team will be heading to the National Junior College Athletic Association Tournament, which starts May 13 in Plano, Texas.

Dylan Clark, a sophomore from McHenry West, and Matt Miller, a sophomore from Prairie Ridge, qualified Saturday as doubles partners by defeating Elgin Community College's Christian Dela Cruz and Ron Pan, 6-4, 6-3, in the Region IV tournament finals at Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills. Miller also had a shot to advance as a singles player but lost to Pan, 7-5, 6-7, 7-10, in a 3-hour, 15-minute match.

The Scots placed fifth as a team with seven points. Prairie State College took first with 17 points, followed by ECC (16).
