Key players: Jack Gardner (Sr., doubles), Joe Hyland (Sr., doubles), Sam Burton (Sr., singles/doubles).

Key players: Josh Allen (Sr., singles), Filemon Martinez (Sr., singles), D.J. Farmer (Jr., singles), Lam Nguyen (Sr., doubles).
Key loss: Lander Allen (Tuskegee University).

Coach: Thomas Lacy, Third season
Key players: Jaden Johnson (Sr.), Josh Coakley (Sr., singles).
Key loss: Tyriq Leslie
Outlook: The Falcons consists of mostly seniors, which should help them have a successful season. They just lack development among the younger players.
