Coach of the Year award at the 27th

Mifsud earns school’s first
MAC tennis title
Jason Mifsud ’13 finished off a torrid
fall by doing something no one in the
history of the men’s tennis program
ever has—winning a Middle Atlantic
Conference Individual Championship.
The top-seed in the top flight, the
Montoursville Area grad made quick
work of a pair of opponents on Sunday,
Oct. 14 to clinch the
title.
“I was stoked,” said
the 5-11, 170-pound
Mifsud. “I don’t show
that much emotion on
the court, but after that
one, I threw my hands
up in the air. It was
a lot of weight off. I
usually don’t like to be
seeded No. 1 because
it’s added pressure,
but to win it for Coach
[LeRoy] Baer was
really nice.”
He finished the
fall with a record of
7-1, which includes
two wins at the ITA
Southeast Regionals
B-2 flight, where he was the first Warrior
ever to reach the semifinals of a flight at
the tournament.
With a 37-11 career record, Mifsud’s
resumé already includes a school-record
number of singles wins, two First Team
All-Commonwealth Conference honors,
one second-team all-conference accolade,
three ITA Scholar-Athlete nods and two
MAC Academic Honor Roll selections.
