June 20, 2012

The Air Force men's tennis team finished the 2011-12 season ranked No. 9 in the Mountain Region, the highest regional finish for the Falcons since finishing the 2005 season in the No. 7 spot.

Air Force posted an 11-13 record this past year, the most wins in one season since 2007. Head coach Dan Oosterhous' club won four regional matches, defeating New Mexico State, Northern Arizona, Weber State and Northern Colorado.

Individually, rising senior Lance Wilhelm finished the campaign ranked 14th in singles and 9th in doubles with rising sophomore Grant Taylor. Wilhelm's singles ranking is the highest for a Falcon since Shannon Buck finished No. 5 in 2005 and Wilhelm's doubles ranking with Taylor is the best finish for an Air Force team since Buck and Trevor Johnson finished No. 7, also in '05.
