Here is a brief excerpt from the interview. The full interview can be viewed here.
Harry Cicma (HC): How are things progressing in the world of Bryant University Tennis?
Ron Gendron (RG): Our transition to Division I has been a great learning experience. Our women's program went undefeated in conference this year, and our men's program is 7-1 against conference competition over the last two years. We are looking forward to our first year of Division I competition in 2012-13. Recruiting has been very exciting. We have made a lot of new friends along the way.
HC: How do you get your team ready for the competition?
RG: Our preparation is very organized. Mondays are off days, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are skill days. Conditioning takes place every day with Fridays typically reserved for light hitting with opponent analysis. We try and maintain a disciplined schedule to allow the guys consistency to handle their academic commitments. This also allows the guys the ability to schedule labs, group projects, and for our upperclassmen, schedule various internships.
