Nic Lancaster recently signed with the Lewis and Clark Men's Tennis team for the 2011-2012 school year.
Lancaster currently plays 3 singles and 2 doubles for the O'Fallon Panthers and has been rapidly improving his game since he began playing as a freshman four years ago. He has placed in several local doubles tournaments, but doesn't consider doubles his only specialty.
"I enjoy singles a lot; my style is to get to the net and put the ball away," he said.
In addition to possessing a strong tennis game, Lancaster is also a good student - participating in Scholar Bowl and chess tournaments. He plans to pursue a computer science degree with an emphasis on computer graphics. He'd like to play tennis through college and join the pro tour for a few years after graduating - citing John Isner as an inspiration.
"I'm excited about Nic's intelligence, work ethic and attacking style of play. That fits our program to a T. I look forward to watching him progress as a student and a player," said Trailblazers head coach James Humphrey.
