Brookfield Central's boys tennis team got a year of experience under their belt last season, but the Lancers still don't have a senior in the starting lineup.
Returning are No. 1 singles player junior Danny Schoen, No. 2 singles sophomore Gunther Treis and No. 4 singles sophomore Carlos Flores Komatsu.
Doubles returnees are junior Tarun Jella, half of last year's No. 1 doubles team, and No. 2 doubles team Henry Mirsberger/Ben Peterson, both sophomores.
Two junior alternates, Brad Bartelt and Sam Liu, also are back.
Coach Dave Steinbach has seven varsity newcomers to work with: sophomores Sam Schreiner and Saad Kahn and juniors David Nemcek, Royce Wagg, Nathan Wang, Brian Zhu and Mark Conti.
Central was third in the Greater Metro Conference (5-2) behind Brookfield East and Marquette. They were 20-5 overall.
"We have quite a few returnees who were very young last year," Steinbach said. "But we have no seniors in the starting lineup again. We're still young but more experienced. We'll try to reload."
The Lancers take part in the Cedarburg Tournament on Saturday and then travel to Brookfield East to take on the powerful Spartans on Thursday, May 1.
