The spring season is quickly approaching, and so is the men’s tennis season. The team has been preparing for what hopes to be a rewarding season. There are high hopes that they will win the PAC championship.

The team captains are extremely excited about the season. Senior captain Mike Sofia has faith in the team this year that they will go all the way. “This team is more than capable to win the PAC. We have been on the door step three years in a row. This team has been working really hard and this could be the year we finally do it,” Sofia said.

Many of the team players are returning from last year. Junior captain Jack Keller is very enthusiastic about the season. Like Mike Sofia, Keller believes that they have the drive to win the PAC championship this year.

“We were runner- up last year in the PAC for the third straight year in a row, and we are hoping to achieve to the next level,” Keller said.

With great teams, comes hard work. The men’s tennis teams, especially the captains have made it clear how much work and practice it will take to win the championship. This year the team will be going on two trips. During spring break they will be traveling down to Hilton Head, North Carolina. They will be participating in six matches. Keller and Sofia are optimistic that the team will earn and come back with a few wins. Their second trip will take place over Easter break. They will be going to Laguna Beach, California. These trips will help the team develop strength and improve their skills, but also to make the team feel united.

“These trips are to create a family-like atmosphere,” Keller said.

The team has also been putting a lot of effort into fundraising for the team and trips. Most of the fundraising was started in the summer, and they are still fundraising through various activities.

Rivals to the team are Eastern University and Alvernia College.

“We love to play Eastern. It is a rivalry no matter which way you look at it,” Sofia said.

Alvernia College is currently defending the PAC championship title. The match against Eastern will take place on March 17. The match against Alvernia will be on March 31 at Cabrini.
