SENIORS TO LEAD MEN’S TENNIS TEAM

The three senior captains on the Muhlenberg College men’s tennis team hope to “go out with a bang” in 2003. They’ll get their first chance tomorrow with a home match against Albright.

The Mules won nine matches for the third straight spring in 2002 – something that had not

been accomplished in 60 years. But the team had a disappointing finish, dropping its last three match to finish at 9-5 overall and 4-4 in the Centennial Conference.

That ending has led to a renewed commitment from seniors Brad Scheller, Cameron Parke and Matthew Fleissig, all of whom have been in the starting lineup throughout their careers. “We’ve been up practicing at 6:00 in the morning, we’ve hit more balls than ever before and we’re in better shape than ever before,” said Fleissig. “We want to go out with a bang and make a statement.”

Muhlenberg returns all six of its starting singles players from last year but will juggle its lineup a bit. Sophomore Jeff Kraft, who won his first 13 singles matches at No. 4, will move up to the No. 1 spot. He won matches at first singles against CC foes Franklin & Marshall and Haverford in the fall.

Scheller (70-43 career record), Parke (60-45-2) and Fleissig (47-28-1) will follow suit. Junior Brian Barkauskas and sophomore Mitchell Reading round out the singles lineup.

“I’d say we have the strongest team we’ve had since I’ve been here,” noted Fleissig. “I think we’re one of the deepest teams in the Centennial Conference. Hopefully we’ll play up to our potential.”

After opening the season with three non-conference matches, the Mules are scheduled to open their CC schedule on March 22 at nine-time defending champion Washington.
