    "I am honored to be able to continue the tradition that SWU Tennis has established in the past few years," said Dr. Brockinton. "I am excited that we have an experienced team returning with some excellent new players. I look forward to the opportunity to invest in the lives of these student-athletes as they prepare for the life that God has created for their future."
