    Shocker Men's Tennis Announces Fall Schedule

    The schedule includes six tournaments which is an increase from last fall where the Shockers competed in four.

    WSU's enters fall play with four returners and five newcomers on the squad, with two of the returners being Murkel Dellien and Marius Frosa who are both coming off a fantastic junior campaign as doubles partners. The duo reached the NCAA Championship quarterfinals and were honored as All-Americans in the spring.

    The Shockers are scheduled to kick off their fall season with trips to Des Moines, Iowa for the Drake Invitational (Sept. 20-22) and Omaha, Neb. for the Bluejay Invite (Sept. 27-29). After this, they will make two visits to Tulsa, Okla. for the ITA All-American Championships (Oct. 5-13) and the ITA Central Regional Championships (Oct. 24-28). Finally, to conclude the fall campaign, WSU will travel to Dallas, Texas where they will compete in the Ralston/Neufield Coaches Challenge (Nov. 1-3) and Minneapolis, Minn. to participate in the Minnesota Invite (Nov. 9-11).

    Frosa and Dellien Ranked No. 5 in the Nation

    The ITA announced their preseason rankings which had the Wichita State University doubles pair of Marius Frosa and Murkel Dellien ranked at No. 5 in the nation. This is the second highest ranking for a doubles pair in Shocker men's tennis history behind Roberto Saad and Paul Smith who were ranked No. 2 during the 1982-83 season.

    From what I can find there are 256 D-1 men's tennis programs. Assuming each program has 3 doubles teams the guys are ranked 5th out of 768 teams.
