Men's Tennis ready for ITA Regional Championships
Oct. 18, 2012
BEAUMONT - The Lamar men's tennis program will cap its fall this weekend when it sets off for Ft. Worth to compete in the ITA Regional Championships on the campus of TCU.
"This is the pinnacle of our fall season, and I'm really looking forward to it," head coach Scott Shankles said. "We're going to be going up against all the DI schools in the state of Texas, from UT to Baylor to Tech and A&M. We're hoping for some good draws and favorable match-ups. I think the guys are prepared, and I'm expecting good things."
Rob Lee will be the only Cardinal going with experience in the event, and he'll be looking to close out his final fall season in style. Sophomores Bruno Snyder and Mikko Rajamaki as well as freshman Carl-Philip Lindqvist will be making their debut in the tournament.
The event is set to begin on Friday, and will run over the course of four days.
