The 2012 Bethel College men's tennis team will kick-off their fall season on Wednesday, August 29th, hosting Spring Arbor University at Baker Park in Mishawaka.
After graduating seven seniors from the 2011-12 squad, the youthful Pilots will definitely have a new look to the team's line-up. Returners include senior Caleb Hadden, junior Rafael Barreto, and a trio of sophomores in Trent Stout, Kevin Kirkland and Gavin McGrath.
"While we will certainly miss the seven seniors who graduated last spring, our focus will be on the future and not the past," stated coach, John Natali. "We believe that our returning players gained valuable experience last year and now will be counted on to lead this team. In addition, the young men that we have added to the program will continue to make us competitive in the Crossroads League."
