Athlete of the Week: Mark Fallati ’18

What he’s done:

This past weekend at the ITA Southeast Regional Tournament, the junior put together an impressive run. He made it to the semifinals in both the singles tournament alone and the doubles tournament with partner Josh Powell ’18. As a whole, Fallati amassed a 7-2 record that included wins against Washington & Lee, Mary Washington, and two wins versus Johns Hopkins.

When did you decide to focus on tennis?
