The Texas A&M men’s tennis team was picked to finish sixth in the Southeastern Conference in a preseason poll of the league’s coaches, announced by the SEC Wednesday.

“Our league is really tough from top to bottom and 2022 is certainly no different,” head coach Steve Denton said. “I thought on paper going into the spring we had potentially five top-10 teams. We will have to see how this all plays out, but I know we are all really excited to start this spring season and compete against the best teams in the country.”

Defending national champion Florida was picked to finish first in the league followed by Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia and South Carolina in the top-five. The preseason poll is voted on by the men’s tennis head coach at each institution and is based on a 13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 vote.

Texas A&M men’s tennis prepares for the start of the 2022 season, the Aggies travel to California for the Sherwood Intercollegiate this weekend before taking on Arizona State on Jan. 19 for the first dual match of the season.
