    The tennis team began its inaugural season in spring 2009, led by coaches Serge Nalywayko and Dennis Anderson. The highlight of that first year was the team’s first trip to the United States Tennis Center in New York City (site of the U.S. Open) to compete in the conference tournament.

    Team Highlights:

    • 2010: Earned a 4-1 conference mark and fourth place finish at the conference championship at the USTC.
    • 2011: Ended up tied for second place in the HVIAC, and performed well in the postseason tournament, finishing second to perennial conference powerhouse Cooper Union.
    • 2012: Won its first regular-season conference championship. The conference tournament—played once again at the site of the U.S. Open—resulted in a runner-up finish for the third time in the program’s short history. The first doubles team of Kevin Bender and Pierre Mewissen captured that flight’s championship.
    • 2013–14: Back-to-back 4-3 records and second place finishes in the postseason tournament.
    • 2015: The team posted a 5-3 overall record, and its 4-1 conference mark was good for second place.
