Sean Sloane | Head Coach | Men’s Tennis | Haverford College

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

Haverford is top of the line academically, so we are looking for serious students – lots of our team are pre-med or pre-law, plus economics majors headed to Wall Street.


Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

Kevin Caulfield ’13 from Hawaii played #1 for us for 4 years, made All-American his senior year, won NCAA postgraduate scholarship, now beginning 5 year combo Masters/Phd program in London. He always had a book with him on trips, never wasted a moment. Sometimes he would come to a match with only a few hours sleep (up late studying for a test) but he never allowed that to inhibit his play on court – incredible CONCENTRATION ON AND OFF THE COURT!
