The Conference Tournament

Russell Armstrong
Class of 2022

Over Easter weekend, we took on FDU in the conference tournament. We earned the sixth seed after beating Wagner 4-1 earlier in the week. FDU was the third seed and went on to win the tournament. They clinched the match on court 6, beating us 4-0 in the first round. Then they beat Saint Francis Brooklyn and Bryant on the following two days. While it always sucks to go out on a loss, I was happy to be out there with my teammates representing the school.

Overall, I am super grateful for everything Mount has provided for me over the last three years. I have been gifted with amazing opportunities and memories that will last a lifetime. My teammates will always be like family to me no matter where I am.

I was recently offered a Graduate Assistantship at Stevenson University, which I have accepted. I was debating on whether or not I should stay at the Mount for my master's but after I was rejected for a graduate assistantship at the school, the option to stay wasn't really viable. It is a bittersweet feeling, but all things must come to an end and I am ready for the next step in my life. The position will subsidize my tuition and living expenses, and I will continue to play tennis at the university but at the D3 level. I will be the best player on the team, so it will offer unique opportunities to be a leader for the guys and hopefully help the university accomplish some great things. I am humbled to have this opportunity to compete for two more years.
