Notes: The Fighting Knights are fortunate enough to bring five of their six starters back from last season's squad that went 20-6, posting a runner-up finish in the Sunshine State Conference Tournament to eventual national championship contender, Barry, and was knocked out in the NCAA Regional by eventual national champions, West Florida. Lynn boasts a veteran team this season with a trio of seniors and a pair of juniors returning to the starting lineup. Sophomore Gabriel Hocevar joins the Blue and White this year following a season at Division I UNC-Wilmington and is expected to bring a high level of play to the starting lineup, especially in the doubles game. Jean-Baptiste Mateo is coming off a stellar junior campaign where he went 23-0 in singles competition before being named an ITA All-American and All-SSC First Team pick in singles. Florian Clemares also picked up All-America and All-SSC accolades in doubles a year ago. The Blue and White kick off the 2018 campaign this Thursday, Feb. 1 at 5 p.m. against St. Thomas (Fla.).
