The Pride men’s tennis team will open up the 2013 season ranked eighth in the USA South preseason coaches poll. Greensboro is entering the season under the direction of first year head coach Andy Smith.
The Pride welcome back three key returnees from a team that posted a record of 5-10 overall and 2-4 in the conference last season. Leading the way is USA South All-Conference Honorable Mention selection Matthew Miller. Miller picked up five victories in the number one singles spot as a freshman.
Also returning are Matthew Moscatello and Matthew Troy. Moscatello picked up four singles wins a year ago while Troy recorded a team high seven victories.
Greensboro will kick off the new slate at home on February 10 against Chowan.
