The Men’s Tennis team won five out of six games played over spring break in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The Colonels defeated Wartburg College, Central State University, University of Mount Union, John Fisher College, and Roanoke College. Unfortunately, the Colonels lost their first game of the season to the University of Findlay (1-5).

The team hopes to dominate and capture their eighth straight conference title this spring. Head coach Chris Leicht, has been coaching for thirteen years now, and feels confident his team will continue to dominate.

The team captains Steven Wilson, Brendon Blachowski, and Throy Austero all contribute to the team’s success. Steven Wilson is the two-time Freedom Conference Player of the Year, and has a MAC Individual title in both singles and doubles play. Brendon Blachowski has earned a second team All-Conference honor, and has two MAC Individual singles crown. Some other important players are Max Appello, Dominic Parfianowicz, Michael Kranz, Adam Lefkandinos, Troy Haas, and Jacob Parfianowicz. Even more players add depth to the team.

The first three games against Lebanon Valley College, Bloomsburg University, and the University of Scranton will be played away. On March 29, the tennis team play home at the Ralston Athletic Complex against Keystone College.
