The Men’s Tennis Team Undefeated Start

By Rene Canales

The spring semester brings out the shorts and sneakers and lets everyone put away the boots. It also means that the Men’s Tennis will be able to take the courts to begin their season.

The team came hot out of the gate and beat Kingsborough Community College eight games to one on the away courts. In four games after that, the tennis team has been able to stay undefeated at an impressive record of five wins and zero losses. A record like that should lead to a high morale and team confidence the Sharks.

 The Men’s Tennis team is coached by longtime coach, Chris Cosenza. Cosenza has been the head coach for the Sharks tennis team since 2003, amassing a favorable 66-12 record, with 4 regional championships. Coach Brown has been named Coach of the Year four times, and his teams have amassed seven NJCAA All-Americans.

 This year’s team is made up of two freshmen and six returning sophomores, producing a good chemistry and plenty of team work for the longtime coach. The season has started as great as it could have, and with an experienced coach like Coach Cosenza, this team will continue to keep rolling in the right direction, that being to an undefeated season and more regional championships.
