Charlotte, NC – The Charlotte 49ers men’s tennis team released their fall tournament schedule. Coach Billy Boykin, who is in fifth season at the helm of the 49ers men’s tennis program, welcomes back nine letterwinners off a 2014 team which won 13 matches and earned an Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) national ranking for the first time since 2001. Alex Calott, Paul Cisti, Forrest Edwards, Kamil Khalil, Jordi Massalle Ferrer and Jack Williams headline the returning letterwinners.
"We are really looking forward to getting the 2014-2015 season kicked off,” Boykin said. “We feel that our fall schedule gives us an opportunity to compete against some of the best talent in the country and we embrace the challenge."
