Senior Spotlight: Men's Tennis Frankie Mullinix

Ladies and gentlemen, with today's Senior Spotlight we would like to thank a men's tennis player for his hard work and dedication to Goucher College and the men's tennis program for the last four years! This senior hails from North Sutton, New Hampshire, who helped Goucher to three-straight Landmark Conference Men's Tennis Championships including earning the decisive fifth point against Scranton last season to clinch the team's fourth conference crown. He finished his career etching his name in the record book, ranking fourth in program history in doubles wins after posting a 52-32 record and ninth in career singles wins thanks to a 42-31 record. He was also named to the all-conference second team in both singles and doubles in 2017. In a shortened season due to COVID-19, he posted three singles wins and a 7-5 doubles record. He won at No. 6 singles in a three-set thriller 6-7, (5-7), 6-3, 10-8 to clinch the match 5-4 against regionally-ranked Methodist on February 23 for what also turned out to be his final collegiate singles win. He teamed with Michael Herman in the fall to go 3-1 in doubles at the Loyola Men's Tennis Tournament, a predominantly field of NCAA Division I competitors on September 20-22. Majoring in Spanish, he is the son of Penny and Kevin. Ladies and gentlemen, Frankie Mullinix.
