WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - The William & Mary men’s tennis team returns to action at the 2015 Saint Francis Health System ITA Men's All-American Championships, beginning this weekend in Tulsa, Okla. Eight Tribe players will take part in the prequalifying tournament, Oct. 3-4, at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center. The qualifying draw is set for Oct. 5-7 with the main draw slated for Oct. 8-12. The ITA All-American Championship is the second collegiate tennis national championship event of the fall season.

Senior Scott Huang, juniors Addison Appleby, Damon Niquet and Aiden Talcott, sophomores Christian Cargill, Lars de Boer and Alec Miller and freshman Tristan Bautil will represent the Tribe in the prequalifying draw. The top 16 finishers in the prequalifying draw advanced to the 128-palyer qualifying bracket. The top 16 in qualifying earn a spot in the main 64-player draw. The first and second round of the prequalifying flight are set for Saturday, Oct. 3, with the third and qualifying rounds set for Sunday, Oct. 4. Players need four wins to advantage to the qualifying flight. Cargill is the prequalifying draw's No. 2 seed.

At the fall-opening Penn Invitational in September, Miller, Huang, de Boer and Talcott topped the Tribe with two singles wins apiece. Cargill and Huang also combined to post a 4-1 doubles mark at the top spot. W&M is currently in its first season under the direction of head coach Jeff Kader, a 2005 graduate of the College. As a player, Kader competed in the main draw of the ITA All-American Championships in 2004.
