BOSTON - Suffolk men's tennis is primed for a 15-match schedule under the guidance of head coach Steve Counnihan with the Rams set to play on their home court nine times.
The 2019 season begins with a three-match homestand over a three-day span. The blue-and- gold will entertain Wentworth to kick off the season on Thursday, March 21 with Emerson stopping by the next day, Friday, March 22. The home stretch concludes with the GNAC opener as the newest conference foe Colby Sawyer stops by Saturday, March 23.
The Rams then hit the road briefly for a match with Albertus Magnus on Tuesday, March 26. From there, Suffolk hosts five of its next seven matches including tilts with UMass Boston (March 28), Johnson & Wales (March 30), Bridgewater State (April 4), Salem State (April 11), and Norwich (April 14).
In the final stretch of the season the Rams travel to UMass Dartmouth on Thursday, April 18 then return to Boston for their final home contest of the season against non-league foe Lesley on Saturday, April 20.
The blue-and-gold wraps up action on the road with trips to Gordon (April 23) and Rhode Island College (April 25).
Suffolk is coming off a 6-7 overall, 1-2 conference campaign. The Rams will look upon the senior leadership of Rami Esrawi, Chris Parnagian and Charles Tang to return to the GNAC Tournament, which it has missed last season.
