The Wright State tennis programs will hold their Senior Days this weekend as the men host Green Bay Saturday at 2 pm and the women welcome in Milwaukee Sunday at 10 am after hosting Green Bay Saturday at 10 am.

The WSU men have been led by senior Martin Arguello as he nears the Raider record for singles wins in a season set by current assistant coach Chad Camper in 2000-01.  The Brazilian native currently boasts a record of 25-10.  Currently 15-4 overall and 4-0 in league play, the Raiders will end the regular season with matches at Youngstown State and Cleveland State next weekend before entering the Horizon League Championship in Indianapolis April 27-29.

"Martin has truly become one of the top players in Wright State tennis history," WSU head coach Sean McCaffrey said.  "In just a short time, we have watched him become not just a strong player in the top position but also demonstrate what a real hard work ethic is all about.  In just two seasons, Martin may have had the most rapid development of any player I have encountered.  Martin's goal, as is the rest of the team's goal, is to win the Horizon League championship.  Individual awards will likely come to Martin but first on his mind is helping his fellow Raiders hoist the Horizon League trophy!"

Their wins included a big victory over rival Butler 6-1 last weekend at home as Arguello cruised to a 6-4, 7-6 singles win and teamed with Lauri Makikalli for a doubles win.

The WSU women currently hold an 8-10, 2-2 record and have been led by senior Masha Peresetsky.  The Westerville, Ohio, native has compiled 46 doubles wins, good for 10th all time, and 46 career singles wins.  She also posted a singles win over Butler last weekend by the score of 0-6, 6-3, 6-4.

"Masha has been the anchor of this women's program for the past four years," McCaffrey said.  "From where we started to where we have come to as a team, Masha has more than just played in the lineup.  Her leadership and sportsmanship will be missed, and Masha has certainly set the bar quite high when it comes to team commitment. We look forward to our remaining few matches and what kind of damage we can make in the Horizon League."

The women will also end the regular season next weekend at Youngstown State and Cleveland State prior to competing in the Horizon League Championship in Indy April 27-29.
