Senior Shane Monroe will join Bhatnagar on Thursday, October 4, in the main draw of singles play. 

“The ITA All-American Tournament is one of the biggest college tennis tournaments,” co-head coach Chris Brandi said. “Malik and Shane will have a great opportunity to play some of the best players out there and find out what we need to continue to work on.”
