The Belmont Abbey men’s tennis program has really improved over the past years. The team is a pretty large team for a college tennis team with around 40 guys on the roster. Last year the team had a great season and ended up becoming the regular season champion for the conference. The team ended up winning the Conference tournament and became the 2022 conference champions.
The men’s tennis team just recently had their senior day. There are 10 seniors graduating this year. For some of the seniors it was their last college tennis matches for the team. All of the seniors had great last matches and ended their careers with some big wins. This was an emotional day for the team because this senior class was something special and they all will be deeply missed.
The Abbey Tennis team is led by their coach Michael Salomon who is a huge part of all of the team’s accomplishments. He pushes the players on the team every day to become better players on the court and better people in the real world.
The team is getting prepared for the conference tournament and are prepared to bring their best tennis. One of the team’s top players Charlie Fremaux says this about the coming up conference tournament “If we go out there and play how we are supposed to we will have a great chance of winning the conference tournament.” The team has an incredible chance of winning back-to-back years and becoming 2023 conference champions.
