Junior CJ Krimbill (Scottsdale, Ariz./Desert Mountain) was one of 32 players in the nation to earn a bid to the NCAA Division III Men's Tennis Singles Championship in Mason, OH.

In addition, Krimbill and junior Louis Stuerke (Overland Park, Kan./Blue Valley Northwest) were one of 16 doubles teams to receive a spot in the NCAA Division III Men's Tennis Doubles Championship.

The individual championships consists of 32 singles players and 16 doubles teams. The selection of teams and individuals for the championships is based on win-loss record, strength of schedule, and eligibility and availability of student-athletes.

The individual and doubles championships will take place May 21-23, both at Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason and will be hosted by Ohio Northern University and the Warren County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Seeds will be determined at a later date and announced on the final day of the team championships, which is May 20.

Krimbill recently became the first player in Spartan program history to be named UAA Most Valuable Player after he went undefeated in singles and in doubles with Stuerke at the 2015 UAA Men's Tennis Championship. 

Krimbill was the top-ranked player in the Central Region in the final regular season ITA NCAA Division III Men's Rankings. He and Stuerke were the second-ranked doubles team in the region.
