Men's Tennis Falls to Duke
May 14, 2011
The Colonials made their first-ever NCAA tournament appearance May 13.
GW men’s tennis fell to 12th-ranked Duke University Friday in Durham, N.C., in the team’s first-ever NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Championships appearance. The Colonials earned an automatic bid after winning the Atlantic 10 Championships last month.
The Colonials, lead by head coach Greg Munoz, finished their regular 2010-11 season with a 15-8 record and 6-0 record in the A-10. Co-captain Erik Hannah went undefeated against A-10 opponents for a perfect 30-0 during his four years on the team.
The team also excelled in the classroom, earning the highest average GPA in GW varsity sports for the 2010-11 academic year. Mr. Munoz said he is proud of his team’s ability to balance their academic and athletic commitments.
“It was a fantastic season,” he said. “They are the best group of guys overall that I’ve had in the last five years.”
In light of the May 13 matchup, three seniors on the team—Mr. Hannah, Mr. Kushma and Andrew Erickson—graduated at GW’s Athletic Commencement on May 10.
