Morgan State's men's tennis team and Howard's women's tennis team were predicted to win the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) men's and tennis northern divisional crowns, while South Carolina State's men's and women's tennis teams were chosen to win the southern divisional men's and women's titles the conference announced on Wednesday. All preseason honors were voted on by the conference's head tennis coaches and sports information directors.

On the men's side, the defending MEAC champion South Carolina State Bulldogs concluded the 2012 season with a 4-0 conference mark and 20-3 overall record en route to their fourth consecutive MEAC crown. The Bulldogs welcome back five letterwinners from last year's campaign.

The Florida A&M Rattlers men's team, who posted a 3-1 MEAC record in 2012, were picked to finish second. Bethune-Cookman was chosen to finish third followed by Norfolk State at fourth and North Carolina Central at fifth.

Morgan State was picked to win the northern divisional crown after posting an undefeated conference record (4-0) and 6-10 overall mark a year ago. The Bears won their first MEAC divisional title last year and return six players to this year's team.

Predicted to finish in second place in the northern division are the Hampton Pirates followed by Howard in third. Coppin State and Maryland Eastern Shore follow at the fourth and fifth spots.

The reigning MEAC women's champion South Carolina State Lady Bulldogs were selected to capture the 2013 crown in the southern division. The Lady Bulldogs were 6-0 in MEAC play and 19-1 overall last season. 

Bethune-Cookman was chosen to finish second in the southern division. Last year, the Lady Wildcats recorded a 5-1 mark in MEAC play and finished 20-7 overall. North Carolina Central, Florida A&M, Norfolk State, North Carolina A&T and Savannah State round out the southern division preseason predictions.

Howard finished 3-2 in MEAC play and 7-6 overall last season. The Lady Bison will compete for their fifth MEAC title and first since the 1995 season.

The Delaware State Lady Hornets (5-0 MEAC, 16-3 overall), won the northern division crown last season, and were selected to finish second this year. Hampton was predicted to finish third, followed by Morgan State, Coppin State and Maryland Eastern Shore from the northern division.

The 2013 MEAC Men and Women's Tennis Championships begins April 19-21 at the Millbrook Tennis Center in Raleigh, N.C.
