“Alon has returned this year right where he left off after his first semester of college. He has continued to mature and get more fit since he arrived last January. He was an integral part of our season last year and is now becoming a leader. He naturally plays big lefty tennis with weapons on his serve and forehand which he compliments with a strong net game. Alon's intensity on the court will be valuable for our team matches this year as well as his ability to clinch matches when it gets close. He has the ability to rise to the occasion over and over again. We look forward to him continuing to improve each semester. He will be a big contributor for us this year.” – CofC Head Coach Jay Bruner
