NEWPORTâ€“In 2012, the North Country boys tennis team finished the year in fourth place in the Metro Conference, paced by a well rounded roster of experienced players that were committed to the program.
This year, the team will return a good portion of last year's group, while adding some new faces to the program.
"We have a good nucleus returning, and good contingent of freshman-first year players who are still working on their skills," said head coach Gary Atchinson.
The team already got their season underway as they squared off against MMU on Monday, losing the match 4-3.
"We ran off three singles victories quickly, with Travers, Thomas and Zach picking up wins. We were looking for Fred or Nate to pull out that fourth win, but we just couldn't do it," Atchinson said.
