The Marquette men’s tennis team’s season ended last year with a loss to then-No. 60 DePaul in the fifth-place game of the Big East Championship Tournament. It hovered around .500 most of the season and finished with a 14-12 record.

Through the efforts of players like junior Jose Carlos Gutierrez Crowley and sophomore Dan Mamalat the team stayed competitive but suffered from a lack of depth as well as a lack of all-around consistency.

Crowley and Mamalat, who teamed to record a 13-6 overall doubles record and a 38-26 combined singles record, look to improve on their success and lead the team this year.

After losing only one senior, Jose Manuel Munoz, the team welcomes four freshmen: David Packowitz, James Stark, Cameron Tehrani and Vukasin Teofanovic.

Stark, a Wisconsin native, and Tehrani, an Arizona native, were all-state players. Teofanovic was rated the top player in Serbia at the under-16 level. Packowitz, an Illinois native, compiled a 35-0 doubles record in 2011 en route to winning doubles title at state.

The team will compete in the 36th annual Milwaukee Tennis Classic this weekend along with Wisconsin, Northwestern and Ball State. The Classic will be held outdoors at the Town Club (7950 N. Santa Monica Blvd., Fox Point, Wisc.) with free admission and parking.

Last season, sophomore Thibault Troude recorded the only victory against the Badgers in the singles match.
