LEBANON, Tenn.-- Cumberland head men's tennis coach Thiago Lins announces the signing of Pavel Kelo to scholarship papers for the 2022-23 season.
“Pavel was a very last minute addition to our roster, he comes highly recommended, and is the highest UTR player that we have recruited in the last few years at 11.49 in singles and 11.90 in doubles. He is projected to be one of the top players in Mid-South Conference this upcoming year and consequently adding a great player to our squad," Coach Lins said.
"I have very high expectations out of Pavel as he has intentions of playing Pro after college which means we expect him to be a great role model to our team on and off court to achieve his goals and help to achieve the team goals as well."
Kelo will be coming to Cumberland out of Slovakia and wants to pursue a professional tennis career after graduation.
"This concludes our recruiting class for this fall and we look forward to competing in our first event at Lincoln Memorial Invite on September 9 & 10.”
