Men’s Tennis Announces Inaugural Schedule

The Illinois Tech Men’s Tennis program will begin play in the 2017–18 school year. The inaugural schedule features three September events before a busy spring.

“We are extremely excited to introduce Men’s Tennis to Illinois Tech,” said Erik Scanlan, the program’s first-ever head coach. “Our schedule has a nice blend of skill levels, allowing us to create a winning culture while also getting the chance to take on some of the nation’s top Division III talent.”

The season begins on Thursday, September 14 at home. Playing at nearby Dunbar Park, the Scarlet Hawks will host Aurora University at 4 p.m. Illinois Tech will also play at Judson College (Wednesday, September 27) and the ITA Central Regional in Kalamazoo, Michigan, (Friday, September 29 through Sunday, October 1). The ITA tournament is an individual competition during which select participants will compete.

“From day one, we want to set a standard of competitiveness for our program,” said Scanlan. “No matter the opponent, we are going to carry a competitive mindset into every match.”
