BOCA RATON, Fla. – Florida Atlantic University’s Men’s Tennis team will participate in the 2013 Southern Intercollegiate Tournament in Athens, GA Sept. 13-16. The tournament is being held at the University of Georgia and will feature participants from 28 college or universities.
FAU will compete in both singles and doubles matches. Coach Ricardo Gonzalez says his players have been working hard to prepare and he is excited for the first tournament of the year.
“Not only have we been working hard on the tennis court, but we have really been focusing on getting our guys physically ready during the fall season” Gonzalez said. “I am looking forward to seeing our guys compete as they are highly motivated and energized for this year.”
This is Coach Gonzalez’s first full-year as FAU’s head coach after taking over as the 2013 interim head coach shortly after the season started. He is counting on returning sophomore Will Neuner, who received 2013 All-Conference honors to be one of the key leaders of this year’s team. The team is retuning three players from last year’s team that had a record of 13-9.
