Coach’s Corner – I lead a great life and must have great karma. Just when it looked like we would be having a down year (losing 3 starters). Andy dropped into my lap! A transfer from Steven Tech, Andy already has experience playing at a high level of D3 tennis. At Steven Tech he went 22-1 in singles playing at #3 and #2 — including wins over tough Middlebury and Skidmore teams.
Andy has a great all-around game that allows him to grind from the baseline, flatten the ball out, comfortably play at the net, and win points with his a booming serve. Andy is our “construction man” when arrives at work his tool box is overflowing with options!
In the fall ITA tournament Andy advanced to the semi’s in singles before bowing out in a tough three-set match. In doubles he and partner Matt Tesmond advanced to the finals before losing to teammates Andrew La Cava and James Rivers.
