UCF Receives Votes in Pre-Season Rankings

ORLANDO, Fla. ( – The UCF men’s tennis team will start the season just outside the ORACLE/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Top-25 rankings.

The Knights ended their 2018 campaign with a record of 11-10, just missing the NCAA Tournament.

The Black and Gold will look to make their fourth ever tournament appearance.  They have the players to do so as five men are individually ranked to start the season.

Gabriel DeCamps topped UCF with an individual ranking of number 31.  Behind him sits Juan Pablo Grassi Mazzuchi who checks in at number 57.  At number 79 sits Alan Rubio, who is followed by Mikhail Sokolovskiy at number 88.  Rounding out the Knights is Trey Hilderbrand sitting at number 107.

UCF begins their season on the road at Arkansas on Saturday, Jan. 19.  The Knights will then travel to Stanford for ITA Kickoff Weekend before returning home to open their slate at the UCF Collegiate Tennis Center at the USTA National Campus against Florida on Thursday, Jan. 31.
