2010 Season Outlook: The Men’s Tennis team reflects the Gloucester County College concept of tradition, excellence, and championships. The 2009 team finished 14-4 overall and were the champions of the NJCAA Region XIX Tournament and placed fourth in the NJCAA National Division III Tournament. Returning to the Roadrunner lineup this spring is Stephen Suboleski, an All-South Jersey performer from Winslow Township HS who had a tremendous freshman season at GCC. Suboleski won the individual Region XIX Championship and reached the final at first singles and National Championship Tournament earning AllAmerican honors. Also returning to the lineup is Sam Murphy. Newcomers Ryan Airo (Pitman HS), Aaron Hartman (Gateway Regional HS), Ed Fedor (Delsea Regional HS), Jared Randazzo (Cumberland Regional HS) and Edmond Thompson (Overbrook Regional HS) will all be counted on to contribute right away. The main competition in NJCAA Region XIX is Mercer CC who the Roadrunners narrowly defeated the Roadrunners in the Region XIX Tournament last season. Brookdale CC also returns a strong nucleus from last years team. The Roadrunners will also square off with national powers CC Rhode Island, Harford CC (MD), Suffolk CC (NY) and Nassau CC (NY) during the regular season.


Spring 2009 Recap: Record: 14-4, Region XIX Tournament: Champions, NJCAA Tournament: 4th The team broke the school record for most wins in a season and won both the regular season Garden State Athletic Conference Championship and the NJCAA Region XIX Tournament. The team carried a lot of momentum to the national tournament and finished 4th. Steve Suboleski reached the national championship match at first singles and Nick Shepherd won the individual national championship at sixth singles. The Roadrunners lose several key players that helped the team to 14 wins last season which was the most in school history. Losses include Dave Reich, Taylor Devlin, John Horsfield and Nick Shepherd. This group combined to win 27 dual matches over their two seasons at GCC, easily the most by any group of tennis players at this college.
