Hello Warhawk Tennis fans, the men’s tennis team has been working hard and looks to be ready for our annual trip to the Midwest Regional ITA tournament in St Peter, MN next week (Oct 2-4). The entire team has been working extremely hard and looking forward to the upcoming tournament where they’ll be able to play someone other than each other.
This year the team will be led by senior captains Kelvin Caiati (Greendale), Danny Glinert (Madison), and Kyle Halweg (Waunakee). In addition to the captains we have two other players returning starters from last year’s NCAA team including Timmy Moller (jr, Stevens Point), Erik Scanlan (so, Libertyville, IL) looking to continue to do damage.
Charlie Miller (jr, Marengo, IL), Brady Porter (so, Madison), Mark Sansait (so, Rolling Meadows), and Will Krieger (so, Arrowhead) are all looking to make the leap into regular starting roles with the departure of graduated seniors Alex Lowe, Erich Palecek, and Alex Mory. The new talented freshmen clawing to also get action will be Logan Covelli (Racine), RJ Rademacher (Minnetonka, MN), Ben Schwartz (Shorewood), and Derek Taylor (Eagan, MN)
Next semester we are also looking forward to the return of Ian Hintz and Mike Harmatys who are unable to play at the ITAs this semester.
Last year we had many highlights for the men and we’ll work hard to continue these trends. The team had its 4th consecutive 20 win season, third straight trip to the NCAA tournament making the round of 32, and have not lost a conference match in 5 seasons now. Six members of the team were honored nationally as ITA scholar athletes earning GPAs over 3.5 and the team was selected as an ITA All Academic team for the 5th consecutive year. During the season the Hawks were ranked as high as #32 nationally and #9 in the region.
