Brandeis men’s tennis received national recognition this week when the Intercollegiate Tennis Association included four of their players in their fall rankings on Nov. 15. The team itself was ranked as #21 in Division III. 

Dylan Walters ’24 was ranked as #22 in the Men’s Division III National Singles ranking and #6 in the Men’s Division III Regional Singles ranking, which includes players from other Northeast area colleges. Tommy Harrison ’26 was ranked as #14 in the same Regional Singles ranking. Harrison and Walters were listed as #19 nationally and #5 in the region in the Men’s Division III doubles rankings. Alex Merson ’26 was #15 in Men’s Division III Singles in the Northeast. 

The ITA’s rankings, which are recognized by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, are decided by the ITA National Ranking Committee. The committee is made up of a National Chair and four total ITA Region Chairs representing the Northeast, which includes Brandeis; the Atlantic South; the Central U.S.; and the West. 

The men’s team’s season is far from over, however, continuing through the spring. Their next match is on Feb. 3 at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire.
