Senior Micheal Riechmann, junior George Goldhoff, sophomores John Mee and Adrian Ortiz, redshirt sophomore William Jou and freshmen Harrison Scott, Liam Caruana and redshirt freshman Julian Zlobinsky will compete in the singles draw. 

Ortiz and Riechmann, Goldhoff and Caruana, Goodwin and Jou, and Mee and Scott will team up to compete in doubles play.

Riechmann, Mee and Jou make their second appearance at this tournament.    

The tournament champions will earn automatic entry into the ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships in New York City, which is held at the same site as the U.S. Open.  

This weekend’s tournament is held at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center. The tournament begins Saturday and will conclude with a crowning of the champion next Tuesday.
