Our Fall season is now in full swing and we are loving it! Each year bring a new energy and excitement for the journey ahead. The coaching staff has been incredibly pleased with the effort and enthusiasm that our players have brought to each practice session so far this year, as the fun is contagious!

The Middlebury Invitational starts on Saturday, and we look forward to watching our group compete against six other top DIII programs. It is always particularly enjoyable to see our Freshmen compete in Panther gear for the first time! Depending on the weather, match play will begin at 8am (if the weather forecast is for rain) and 9am (if the weather forecast is clear). Our entire roster will be competing, aside from Thorne Gregory and Nate Eazor who are studying abroad in Spain and Australia respectively. We miss those two already, but all reports are that they are enjoying their semesters abroad so far and we can’t wait to have them rejoin us next semester.
We also want to highlight that our three freshmen have hit the ground running and Aidan Harris, Andrew Mueller, and Robby Ward have already demonstrated that they will be a force in our program for many years to come. Stay tuned for our freshmen spotlights that will begin next week, where we will get to know each of our newcomers a bit more.
|From our most recent graduating class (both men's and women's programs), can you name the three players we will be adding to our Middlebury Tennis All-American plaque that is hanging in our team room?|
To watch the match, our sports information team has set up a homepage (LINK HERE) where you can click on a link that will take you to any court throughout the day that you want to watch. We have cameras that we plan to stream on Courts 1-6 on our outdoor courts and Courts 1-4 on our indoor courts. The cameras will be rolling all day, so please touch base with your “favorite” player if you want to get an update from them as to which court they will be playing on and when. Or if you like, you can click through the courts to see which one you want to watch. We are looking forward to using PlaySight for the first time at a Fall tournament!
The draws can also be accessed at the same link provided above.
Also, we want to thank everyone who purchased items from our online team pop-up store! We love knowing that beautiful Panther gear is going to be worn with pride both near and far!
