Men's Tennis Signs Three for 2007-08



CHICAGO- DePaul men’s head tennis coach Arvid Swan announced the signing of three student-athletes to National Letters-of-Intent today.  Benjamin Hartman of Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan and Adam Williams of West Bloomfield, Michigan join Tim Cadet of Baltimore, Maryland to form the 2007-08 freshman class.

 

“All three players are considered top 200 recruits in the nation,” Swan said.  “It is an extremely athletic class and all three players will make an immediate impact on our team and develop into excellent college players.”

 

At Grosse Pointe South High School, Hartman earned All-State honors and a top four ranking in Michigan after reaching the semifinal round of the 2006 state championship in the spring of his junior year.  “Ben is a highly ranked player in the Midwest who is extremely quick and has great groundstrokes,” Swan said.

 

As a junior at West Bloomfield High School, Williams also earned All-State honors in Michigan and reached the quarterfinal round of the 2006 state championship.  “Adam is a left-handed player who is very athletic and has tremendous power on his groundstrokes,” Swan said.

 

Cadet carries a Mid-Atlantic ranking of eighth and attends the Friends School of Baltimore.  “Tim has an all-court game with a strong serve and forehand,” Swan said.

 

“In addition to being great athletes, all three individuals are men of great character and will have a positive impact in the classroom and on campus,” Swan said.  “On the court, they will make an immediate contribution in both singles and doubles.”

 

The 2006-07 Blue Demons concluded the fall portion of their schedule at Western Michigan’s Vredevelt Invitational on October 29.  The winter dual schedule commences Janurary 12, 2007 at Northwestern.
