A season to remember!

Lycoming's 2010 men's tennis team recorded one of the best seasons in the history of the program. The Warriors earned the school's first-ever Commonwealth Conference championship and an automatic bid to its first NCAA Division III Tournament appearance. Under the direction of ninth-year head coach John Dorner, the Warriors finished the season at 10-3 overall and 5-1 in conference play. This marks the Warriors' first winning season since 1982.

Lycoming, which featured three freshmen and three juniors on the varsity squad, reached the national championships by rallying from a 4-1 deficit in the conference tournament finals to defeat its opponent 5-4 on May 8.

The Warriors were led by junior Alex Beattie, who was tabbed the Commonwealth Conference Tournament Most Valuable Player. He finished the year with an overall record of 12-2. Beattie and fellow junior Robert Brown were named first-team All-Commonwealth while freshman Jason Mifsud earned second-team honors. In dual competition, freshman David Brown was a perfect 12-0 at the No. 4 singles spot.
