CMS Adds Alex Lane

The Stags have added Alex Lane for this spring. Lane is transferring from Azusa Pacific University, where he played #3 singles and #3 doubles last year for the NAIA powerhouse. He is a native of Claremont, California and played Futures tournaments for a couple years after completing high school, therefore making him a 24 year old sophomore. I expect Lane to certainly be in the Stags top 3 this year, most likely at the #1 spot. This is a huge addition for Claremont, as they were lacking a star player on this year's team. With the addition of Lane, I think CMS has solidified their place as the #2 team in the country at the moment. With Erani and Johnson now able to move lower in the lineup, this becomes a significantly stronger team.
