Eleven Returning Lettermen and Two Capable Newcomers Should Help Keep Wesleyan a Winner in 2006-07


While the team has a significant hole to fill with the graduation of Max Kates '06, who occupied the top singles spot the last two seasons whle also making consistent contributions in doubles, the Cardinals have all 11 other players back who stepped on the court during a 10-5 posting in 2005-06. Team tri-captains Tallen Todorovich '07 (main photo) and Jack Rooney '07 (right inset photo) are two of the top returning talents along with Mike Frank '08 and Paul Gerdes '09, who led the troops with a 10-3 singles mark last season. The influx of two excellent prospects from the West Coast in George Pritzker '10 (Encinitas, Calif.) and Miles Krieger '10 (Prescott, Ariz.) should help keep Wesleyan in the running for another winning campaign and a shot at a NESCAC tournament spot in the spring. The team will open the fall with a match at Coast Guard Wed., Sept. 13.
