Having not lost a league match since the fall of 2006 (11-straight victories), Leading the charge for a conference-best 11th trophy is sophomore and team captain Matt Gordon. The reigning NEC Rookie of the Year steamrolled to an unblemished record against league foes(5-0), and a 24-10 singles record. Marco Jemersic arrives on the Metropolitan Campus with a No. 32 ranking in the Croatian boys 18’s singles. The freshman will likely fill Gordon’s void in the No. 2 flight.

He peaked in the junior rankings at No. 37. Rookie Dominic Hemy and sophomore Alex Jorne round out the Knights’ projected starting line-up.

Senior Keiichiro Adachi and sophomore Daniel Quesada all return for the 2008-09 campaign. Freshmen Diego Benavent and Stephan Muller provide stiff competition for the established talents. All six will fight their way fortime in dual matches. Adachi made his debut last spring, posting a 4-2 singles mark, winning his lone league appearance. He played as high as No. 3 singles, and won three-straight matches at one point. Benavent has been playing competitively for over ten years and reached a ranking ofNo. 241 in Spain.
