UCF Knights choose Harrison Richmond as captain for the new season

The University of Central Florida men's tennis team announced that Harrison Richmond will be the team captain for the 2016-17 season, competing as a redshirt senior. Pawleys Island, South Carolina native, Richmond played for 4 years at Virginia, winning ITA Atlantic Regional singles Championships in his freshman season.

He already customized himself well with the Knights squad, taking the doubles crown at the Dick Vitale Intercollegiate Clay Court Classic with Mariano Porter, and advancing to the semi-final of the Roger Pharr Classic in Orlando.

"Harrison has had an incredible impact both on and off the court for UCF already," said director of tennis John Roddick. "His experience at Virginia where he won multiple national championships together with his leadership qualities has been great for the team.

Harrison has earned the captain title and I have no doubt that he will continue to put the team first as he has done all year."

"I want to thank the UCF men's tennis program for the unmitigated faith they have placed in me as a leader," Richmond said. "I am humbled and greatly appreciative of this opportunity to serve others and I look forward to embracing the many challenges that lie ahead."
