The Lions experienced an up-and-down 2005-2006 season. With the loss of their top player, senior Ryan Carty, the Lions have a lot of ground to cover this year.
“Ryan was the epitome of the College’s tennis and what we wanted our team to be,” head coach Scott Dicheck said.
Junior Mike Klimchak and sophomore Roger Mosteller will return this season. Klimchak became a force last year as he dominated at No. 2 singles. Mosteller’s power will also be an intimidating factor. They will join in doubles to prolong their 9-0 record from the spring.
Junior Eric Ferriere, who had an impressive 11-1 record last year, will return to the courts this season with senior Corey Ball.
“They will be major contributors at No. 2 doubles as they bring intensity, focus and hard work each time they come to practice or a match,” Dicheck said.
Other returning players and incoming freshmen will also bring dominance to the team to broaden their success and improve on last season’s accomplishments.
