In this week's segment of "Meet Our Coaches", we are featuring Head Men's and Women's Tennis Coach Bob Migliorini.
For the second consecutive season, the women's tennis team recorded a 4-9 overall record with an 0-7 record in GNAC action. The Lady Falcons ended the year with back-to-back victories over Vaughn and York (NY).
The men's tennis was only able to play three matches in 2020, as the spring season was canceled due to concern over the spread of COVID-19. The Falcons' lone win came against Vaughn, 9-0, on March 7.
