SKILLMAN, N.J. (Sept. 9, 2014) - Following stellar 2013-14 campaigns, ETSU sophomores David Biosca (Sant Fruitos de Bage, Spain) and Diego Nunez (Monterrey, Mexico) have earned spots in the ITA Division I Preseason Men's Singles Rankings.
Biosca and Nunez received singles rankings of No. 97 and 114, respectively. Only one other player from the Southern Conference earned a spot on the preseason singles list, Furman's Adam Steryous.
Last season, Biosca and Nunez helped ETSU clinch the program's eighth consecutive Atlantic Sun Championship title and 12th NCAA Tournament appearance.
The two combined to post an 11-2 singles record in A-Sun play during their freshman seasons, with both earning spots on the Atlantic Sun First Team and Atlantic Sun All-Freshman Team.
Biosca and Nunez each had solid fall seaons in 2013, as well, with both players advancing to the Round of 64 at the USTA/ITA Ohio Valley Regionals. Biosca advanced all the way to the quarterfinals (Round of 8).
ETSU will begin fall competition Friday, Sept. 12 in Athens, Ga., as part of the Southern Intercollegiate Invitational.
