Men's Tennis Tabbed to Finish Third

SALEM, Va. - Following up on a 2009 season which saw head coach Conor Smith earn Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Coach of the Year honors, the Bridgewater Eagles men's tennis team was tabbed to finish third in the ODAC according to the conference coaches.  

Bridgewater finished the 2009 campaign with a 7-2 mark in ODAC play, before reaching the semi-final round of the conference tournament.

BC returns a pair of all-conference players in Chris Radke and Teddy Callow.

Radke returns after earning a spot on the All-ODAC First Team at No. 3 singles. He posted an 11-7 overall record and 7-1 conference mark. 

Callow returns to the fray after picking up second team All-ODAC honors in 2009.  The junior went 8-8 overall and 5-2 in league play a season ago. 

Hampden-Sydney was selected to finish in the top spot after earning the 2009 conference title.

Washington and Lee was tabbed to finish second, a meager two points out of the top spot.

Roanoke and Emory & Henry round out the top five.

Bridgewater opens 2010 spring action on February 23 when the squad travels to Ferrum.
