Men’s Tennis Season Underway

The Men’s Tennis Team has high hopes for this season, and with a deep and skilled roster, looks to improve from last season’s woes.

The team finished with a 4-12 record and graduated seven seniors last season.

Nonetheless, a team that is highly dominated by underclassmen wants to turn things around and has aspirations to do so.

“We definitely want to make if far in the Cap-8 tournament, qualify for regionals, and hopefully make it to states,” said Owen Langlois, senior and leader for the team.

However, with these aspirations comes the even greater responsibility to train and work hard to fulfill those goals, and the team is hopeful.

“We are deep with solid players, and a few that stand out, but we can definitely win a lot of matches this year,” added Langlois.

The team will rely on key players such as Langlois and Josh England, sophomore, to boost the team forward and get things going. Langlois plays the top spot for singles, and the duo play together at the first spot in doubles.

The two have trained hard during the offseason to improve their skills and prepare themselves for the tough competition they will face, “It’s tough playing at the one spot. All year you have to play D-1 commits every week,” said Langlois.

Now, playing in a conference that is weaker than it has been in years past, the tennis team has an opportunity to take control and dominate the standings. With their season underway, the team looks to have a successful year and maintain a positive demeanor.
