For the 12th time in the last 13 seasons and the 10th time under head coach Brian Kalbas, the North Carolina women's tennis team has been awarded a home regional and a national seed for the NCAA Division I Team Championship, the NCAA announced Tuesday.

The Tar Heels are the No. 7 seed in the 2014 event and will welcome VCU, Tennessee and Georgia State to the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center May 9 and 10.

Carolina will face Atlantic-10 champion VCU at 1 p.m. on May 9. That match will follow the first-round meeting between Sun Belt champion Georgia State and SEC at-large selection Tennessee at 10 a.m. The two first-round winners will meet Saturday, May 10, at 3 p.m. for the right to advance to Athens, Ga., this year's final NCAA site.

Carolina is making its 16th consecutive appearance in the national tournament and 11th in a row under Kalbas. The Tar Heels have an all-time NCAA record of 29-15 and have advanced beyond the regional round on nine occasions, including last year's run to the NCAA quarterfinals.
