GW Men's Tennis Caps 2013 Season With No. 73 National Ranking
Colonials Finish Season in Top 75 for First Time Under Greg Munoz
May 28, 2013
WASHINGTON – After reaching the Atlantic 10 Championship title match for the fourth straight season, the George Washington men’s tennis team is ranked No. 73 in the final 2012-13 national rankings by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
GW broke into the national rankings at No. 50 in February and moved up to No. 45 in March for its highest-ever ranking under seventh-year head coach Greg Munoz. The Colonials wrapped their season in April with an overall record of 17-7, the second straight year the squad reached the 17-win plateau. Included among the challenging 24-match schedule were nine contests against nationally ranked opponents. GW went 4-5 against top-75 competition with upset victories over No. 67 Old Dominion, No. 59 Dartmouth, No. 61 South Alabama and No. 60 Georgia State.
GW closed spring play in April at the A-10 Championship where it was edged by then-No. 30 VCU, 4-3, in a near five-hour battle for the conference crown that saw five sets decided by tiebreakers. Following the championship, five Colonials' players earned spots on league postseason teams, highlighted by freshman Danil Zelenkov being named A-10 Most Outstanding Rookie Performer. Sophomore Francisco Dias and junior Nikita Fomin were named to the All-Atlantic 10 First Team, while senior Alexander van Gils was named to the Second Team and junior Ulrik Thomsen earned a spot on the All-Academic Team.
Fomin, who wrapped his first-year in Buff and Blue with an overall record of 24-8 as the No. 1 singles competitor, is currently ranked No. 94 in the nation. Final ITA National Singles and Doubles Rankings will be released on Wednesday, June 5.
