The St. John’s Men’s Tennis team opened up their 2024 season with a straight sweep in three days of matches against Bryant, Quinnipiac and Long Island University (LIU).

The reigning 2023 Big East champions enter the season with three returning players in sophomore Adam Groves, and juniors Carl Gustavsson and Ryota Kaneda. Gustavsson comes off a season that ended in a First-Team-All Big East selection following his championship run. They’ll be joined by eight new players on the roster, including the off-season acquisition of Francisco Bascón, a graduate student from Idaho who has already entered the scene nicely by earning himself a trip to the ITA Super Regionals last October.
