Just what's available through sources like tennisrecruiting.net and their own website. Doesn't sound like a strong program - the freshmen listed on their website do not have any stars on TRN.net and they finished 4-14 last year.

Nobody on the team had a winning record in singles and the team was 34-74 in singles dual matches but a bit better in doubles.

Could be that you're just the player they need. Nothing wrong with playing where you fit in best - in fact there's everything right about it.

Where are you currently located? I know a few really good schools in Mass and Rhode Island that are always looking for solid players, from DIII to DI.

their team is pretty bad...one of their top few players who is a freshman this year was also from connecticut and was ranked around 50-60 in new england and their other freshman recruits were much much lower

Bryant DI, Bentley, Stonehill DII, UMASS Dartmouth DIII...I played for Bryant, they just went DI this year but I'm not sure if coach is taking players next year. Stonehill and Bentley were in out conference in DII and both lost a few senior this year and next year too.

Just remember pick a school that fits your education needs first, good luck!

Bentley is primarily a business school (and a good one I should add). In the summer I hit with a guy who was a player on their team before he graduated in 2007. Decent player, both singles and dubs.

What is your academic focus or do you not know yet?

Thats actually my primary focus, for a major at the moment it is account, but certainly in the business field.

^^^ Keep that GPA up as high as you can...Bentley is getting much tougher on admissions, as are all of the B-schools.
