MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. — After a strong showing at the ITA Regionals in Sumter, South Carolina, the Georgia College Men's Tennis team returns home to host the GC Men's Fall Championship at the Centennial Center Tennis Facility Oct. 5-6.

The four-team tournament will feature players from Florida Tech, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) and fellow Peach Belt Conference (PBC) member Young Harris College.

The Bobcats return six players from a year ago: Nathan Connelly (McDonough), Cole Heller (Woodstock), Enzo Kohn (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), Jannik Kumbier (Neumünster, Germany), Robin Moller (Hamburg Germany), and Noah Wallace (Grayson).

They are bolstered by new additions in Ben Grunert (Roswell), Ben McClurg (Belfast, Northern Ireland), Colton Phillips (Woodstock) and Matt Rogel (Saurtron, France).

Rogel, an ABAC transfer, will face off against his former team for the first time.

Friday's round will begin with doubles action at 9 a.m. and will be followed by two rounds of singles play. Saturday's slate features a pair of doubles rounds at 9 a.m. and a lone singles round to follow.
