Men’s and women’s tennis picked near top of A-10

For the third consecutive season, the men’s tennis team is predicted to finish first in the Atlantic 10, while the women’s tennis team, coming off of its surprise run to the conference championships last season, is predicted to finish second in the A-10.

The men’s tennis team will return all four of its all-conference selections from last season, including junior Ugur Atalay and senior Eric Hannah and Chris Kushma, all of whom were named to the All-Atlantic 10 First Team last season. Senior Yan Levinski was named to the all-conference second team.

The women’s tennis team, which earned the fifth seed in the A-10 Tournament last season and rode it all the way to the Colonials’ first conference championship appearance since 1997, are led by 2010 Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year Dawn Buth. GW will also return junior Jacqueline Corba and sophomore Mimi Hamling, both of whom were named to the All-Atlantic 10 First Team last season, as well as sophomore Dorota Lysienia, who was an all-conference second team selection last year.
