Lander Men`s Tennis History
Lander to battle for Peach Belt crown
Coach Brett Simpson
B
rett Simpson
begins his
fifth year as
head men’s and
women’s tennis
coach at Lander
University after
serving as the
head coach at
Coach Brett Simpson
Anderson
University for eight years.
A three-time All-American at Lander,
Simpson was a part of four consecutive
national championship teams from
1991-94. He was the 1993 Peach Belt
Conference Player of the Year, Rolex
Southeast singles champion and Rolex
national singles finalist. In 1994 he was
part of the NCAA Division II doubles
championship team.
Simpson was inducted into Lander’s
Athletic Hall of Fame in June 2002.
After taking over the program at
Anderson University in July 1997,
Simpson was able to re-establish the
tennis program to national prominence
with two trips to the NCAA Sweet
Sixteen and six consecutive NCAA
Regional Tournament berths. His men’s
team at Anderson dominated the now
Conference Carolina’s with a 65-5
conference record, which included four
regular-season and three tournament
conference championships in six years
of conference play. During this time
Simpson was named Conference Coach
of the Year in 2002 and 2004, Region
Coach of the Year in 2001 and South
Carolina Coach of the Year in 2002.
During his four years at Lander,
Simpson posted a 62-26 record with the
men's team including a 23-7 Peach Belt
Conference record. Simpson started the
women’s program in 2007 and their
three-year record is 30-31.
The men’s team has captured one
regular-season conference title and has
reached the NCAA regional tournament
all four years, finishing as high as No. 9
nationally in 2008.
Simpson, a native of Sydney,
Australia, earned his bachelor’s degree
in business administration from Lander
in 1994.
He resides in Greenwood with wife
Paula and son Graeme.
C
oach Brett Simpson believes the Lander men's tennis team has more experience and
depth than in recent years, and he hopes that will help the Bearcats advance further in
NCAA Division II post-season play in 2011.
Lander, ranked No. 16 in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll, begins its
spring season Tuesday afternoon against Newberry College.
"We should be an improved team from last year," Simpson said. "Where it takes us, you
never know. But I think we have the experience and talent to make a good run."
The Bearcats will be
chasing their sixth consecutive NCAA Regional
appearance. Of the last five
years, Lander has fallen
one victory shy of
advancing to the national
tournament three times
(2006-2008).
The Bearcats finished
16-7 last season, losing to
Georgia College & State in
the semifinal round of the
Southeast Regional
tournament. Lander was
ranked No. 16 in the final
poll.
Seven of the top 20
teams in the latest poll are
from the Peach Belt
Conference, including
Armstrong Atlantic No. 3,
Columbus State No. 9,
Georgia College No. 12,
Francis Marion No. 14,
Lander 16th, Flagler No. 17,
and Augusta State 18th.
All are on Lander's
schedule this spring.

Armstrong Atlantic April 2.
When Lander ended a string of 12 national championships with eight consecutive
Division II titles from 1993-2000, it forced the rest of the Peach Belt to get stronger. And
Simpson said the trend continues.
"In fact, I think more teams are getting stronger (from top to bottom)," he said. "The
national champion has come out of our conference 10 times in the last 18 years. There are
going to be two or three teams in our conference that will be top 10 teams in the nation and
three or four teams just outside the top 10. It's just part of being in the Peach Belt.
"That's why you try to recruit the best players, practice hard, and do everything you can
to make sure you are going to be competitive."
Returning players include seniors Henrik Willers (Lund, Sweden), Carlos Marques (Uba,
Brazil) and Juan Manrique (Bogota, Colombia), juniors Paul-Henri Arrigoni (Bordeaux,
France), Gary Bertoldo (Mareeba, Australia) and Maxime Desmars (Coueron, France), and
sophomore Christopher Mattsson (Gothenburg, Sweden).
Newcomers include sophomores Oscar Perman (Lund, Sweden), and Ross Armstrong
(Johannesburg, South Africa), and freshman Oscar Axelsson (Smalandsstenar, Sweden).
"We are returning a good crop of players," Simpson said. "We have eight returning and
three new guys. That's a good sign as far as experience. The majority of our top guys have
been playing here for a while, and that counts for a lot especially in the big matches.
Bearcats looking to return as a national title contender
I think we played well in the fall and I think teams saw that
Lander will definitely be a competitive team."
Arrigoni is Lander's highest ranked player, being 19th nationally
and No. 7 in the region. The All-American was 17-3 in singles last
year, including 7-1 in Peach Belt Conference matches. He was 16-3
in the number one singles slot and was 4-0 against nationallyranked opponents.
"Arrigoni has proven himself as one of the best players in the
conference," Simpson said. "He has been working hard. He
doesn't take anything for granted. He knows everyone is going
out there to try to beat him. He has no easy matches in that
number one (singles) position.
"We are looking for good things from him. Really, we are going
to be pretty solid throughout the lineup. I think this is the best
depth that we've had in the last few years."
Willers is ranked 40th nationally and No. 16 in the region, and
Marques is 19th in the region. Willers was 4-8 in singles in 2010,
including 3-5 in the No. 3 singles slot. Marques was 5-0 in singles.
"Carlos had a remarkable fall and probably has improved more
than anybody on the team," Simpson said. "He got his first
regional ranking as a senior and that's a testament to his hard
work and commitment."
Manrique finished 13-4 in singles play last season, including 62 in the Peach Belt. He was 6-1 in number four singles action. But
more impressively, he participated in the Pearson National
Economics Insider Symposium in Washington, D.C., last June.

graduate and graduate students chosen as national finalists in
competition that involves submitting a paper explaining how they
would change an aspect of the economy for the better.
Desmars posted an 11-1 singles record last season and won all
six of his matches at the No. 5 slot. Mattsson finished 12-6 in
singles, including 6-3 in the conference.
The newcomers have promise for the future and hope to make
an impact. Axelsson was a top flight player in Sweden, Armstrong
is a transfer from Montgomery Junior College in Maryland, and
Perman played one year at Virginia Commonwealth University.
"It's going to be very competitive to even make the lineup,
which is a good sign for the team," Simpson said. "I think our
depth at the bottom of the lineup will help us win a lot of matches.
We have a lot of guys vying for the top six. It's probably going to
take four or five matches before we initially sort it (a lineup) all
out."
As is usually the case this time of the year, the doubles
combinations have yet to be sorted out. But it's a very important
part of the team as doubles results count as the first three points
in every match.
"We've been trying different combinations, different than the
fall," Simpson said. "Whoever I choose to play against Francis
Marion (Feb. 18) will definitely be the guys."
The tennis team will not be opening at the Jeff May Athletic
Complex this week and Simpson said he isn't sure if that will
happen this spring.

ven as a mathematics professor, Joe Cabri finds the numbers
hard to believe. Those numbers are the ones he put in the
record books for Lander during his 31 years as the men’s tennis
coach.
Since announcing his retirement in April (2005), he has had
time to reflect on the 12 national championships, three hall of
fame designations, 10 national coach of the year awards, and 56
All-American titles that he and his teams have earned.
“When I was winning the championships, it was like riding
down the road at 60 or 70 miles per hour and you see trees and
poles go by,” said Cabri. “Now, when you are done you have
time to look back and then it becomes more amazing that it
happened.”
Saluting Cabri’s accomplishments, Lander athletics director Jeff
May said, “Few coaches have experienced or will ever experience
the success Coach Cabri has achieved. His record of 12 national
championships and 23 consecutive league championships might
never be equaled in college sports.”

About Lander
HISTORY
Lander University was founded by Methodist clergyman
Samuel Lander in 1872 as Williamston Female College in
Williamston, S.C. It remained a private institution for 26 years. In
1898, the College gained support of the South Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. In 1904, the
College was relocated to Greenwood, S.C., and was renamed
Lander College in honor of its founder.
In 1948, when the Methodist Conference, pursuant to a policy
of consolidation in its education efforts, decided to end support
of Lander College, interested citizens of Greenwood formed The
Lander Foundation as a nonprofit corporation and leased the
College from the Church.
In 1951, the
county of Greenwood obtained the
College name and
property from the
Methodist
Conference. The
South Carolina
General Assembly
created the
Greenwood
County Education
Commission,
known as The
Lander Foundation, to serve as
the board of
control for the
College. Lander
thus became the
only four-year
liberal arts college
in the United
States to be controlled and financed by a county government.
On July 1, 1973, Lander College came under the control of the
Board of Trustees of the State Colleges of South Carolina making
Lander a state-supported college. The State College Board of
Trustees governed Lander, the College of Charleston and Francis
Marion College. Effective July 1, 1988, governance of Lander was
vested in the Lander College Board of Trustees.
On July 1, 1992, by action of the Board of Trustees, the
institution became Lander University.
Lander was founded as a college for women. Men were
admitted in 1943, and the institution is now completely coeducational. Lander University subscribes to a policy of equal educational and employment opportunity for all.
Mission Statement
Grounded in the belief that education is a liberating force
which makes it possible for an individual to live a life of meaningful activity, of personal satisfaction, and of service to others as a
neighbor and a citizen, Lander University has chosen teaching
and learning as its principal concerns and providing a challenging
education for qualified students as its mission. Through its liberal
arts programs and its professional schools for business, education, and nursing, the University offers an undergraduate
curriculum that combines a broad liberal education with specialized study leading either to immediate application in a career or to
more advanced study. The undergraduate programs provide
opportunities for students to achieve competence in a major
discipline and to explore a broad core curriculum designed to
assist them in developing the ability (1) to gather and critically
analyze information from a variety of fields and to use that
information as a basis for reasoned judgments and for effective
problem solving, (2) to synthesize diverse ideas and information,
and (3) to understand and convey ideas clearly. In addition to its
undergraduate
programs, Lander
provides a limited
number of master’s
programs and post
graduate courses
that respond to
critical needs of
the immediate
region and the
state. Supporting
the University’s
role as a teaching
institution and
recognizing that
scholarship is
essential to
establishing and
maintaining
excellence of
instruction, Lander
faculty engage in
scholarly and creative activities appropriate to their teaching
fields. In addition, the faculty and staff recognize Lander’s
responsibility to the public and to the local economy; therefore,
the university serves as an intellectual and cultural center and
cooperates with various agencies, schools and businesses.
STUDENT ACTIVITIES
Lander University has over 60 organizations and clubs, each
offering students different opportunities. The choices, challenges
and opportunities students face by participating in these organizations will assist them in classes and will allow them to meet new
friends and socialize with old friends. There are many different
areas to choose from such as academic organizations, clubs and
interest groups, media organizations, club sports, honorary
societies, religious organizations, and Greek fraternities and
sororities.

writing, interviewing skills, etc.) and a part-time/full-time job
posting service.
Counseling Services
Offices within the Department of Counseling Services exist in
order to help prevent problems, or to assist students in dealing
with problems once they occur. Personal counseling is available at
no charge on an individual, confidential basis to any student
experiencing difficulties such as low morale, relationship problems, time management pressures, alcohol or drug abuse or poor
academic performance. Personal counseling is accessible by
appointment or on a walk-in basis for students.
LANDER’S CAMPUS LIFE
Residence Life
Lander’s residence halls offer an ideal living environment for
student’s right on campus. Besides the convenience of living
close, residence life allows students to encounter a full college
experience. Meeting new friends, living away from home and no
monthly bills are just a few advantages to residence life. Lander’s
campus is also safe, friendly and convenient with parking areas
outside each residence hall.
SUPPORT SERVICES
Safety
Lander offers a number of progams to ensure that all students
reach their highest potential inside and outside of the classroom.
These services are free to the students and we encourage every
student to take advantage of them. They often make the difference when a student is encountering difficulties in college.
Lander University provides a 24-hour certified police force to
enforce federal, state, and local laws and university rules and
regulations. They also administer the university vehicle registration and parking policies and offer educational and crime prevention programs for students, faculty and staff.
Lander also has a formal Emergency Action Plan which establishes procedures that will aid officials in determining the best use
of resources to manage disasters, minimize loss of life and injury,
and protect resources and facilities. Officers are available to
escort students, faculty and staff as a safety precaution to and
from areas on campus. Emergency speaker telephones are located
across campus. These phones are wired with emergency buttons
that will automatically dial University Police.
Peer Tutoring
Lander offers free tutorial services to all enrolled students. The
Academic Success Center includes the Math Lab and the Peer
Tutoring Lab (which tutors all subjects not covered in the other
labs.)

The Peach Belt Conference
Home of 28 national championships and counting
Lander University is a proud member of the Peach
Belt Conference, which formed in 1991-92 and is
based in Augusta, Ga.
The conference hosts championships in men’s
baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer and
tennis and women’s basketball, cross country, golf
soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball.
The idea for the formation of the PBC was discussed in November 1988 in Greenville, S.C., with 11
schools represented. Five of the colleges at that first meeting, along with two
other schools, formed the new conference when USC Aiken hosted another
meeting on Dec. 3, 1989.
The 13 current PBC members are: Armstrong Atlantic State University,
Augusta State University, Clayton State University, Columbus State University,
Flagler University, Francis Marion University, Georgia College & State University, Georgia Southwestern, Lander University, Montevallo University, the
University of North Carolina at Pembroke, North Georgia College & State
University, and USC Aiken.
The conference recognizes an All-Conference team at the end of the year and
an Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week during the season. Visit the
PBC at www.peachbeltconference.org.
The NCAA
Lander is one of 254 institutions that are members of NCAA
Division II.
The NCAA is a voluntary association of about 1,200 colleges
and universities, athletic conferences and sports organizations
devoted to the sound administration of intercollegiate athletics.
The colleges, universities and athletic conferences that make
up the NCAA appoint volunteer representatives who serve on committees that
introduce and vote on rules called bylaws.
The members also establish programs to govern, promote and further the
purposes and goals of intercollegiate athletics. The membership is divided into
three main divisions: Division I, II and III. Each NCAA division has a separate
governing structure and membership representatives from each division that
serve on associationwide committees. Visit the NCAA at www.ncaa.org.

“To be a member of a Lander University intercollegiate team is both a privilege
and a responsibility. We expect and demand that our student-athletes excel
in the classroom as well as on the courts and fields and that they perform
with pride, poise and proper conduct. Character, citizenship and a spirit of
volunteerism are also expected of those who compete on behalf of Lander
University. We believe that these self-discipline activities will assist all
student-athletes in obtaining a degree and will equally benefit them in becoming contributing members of society.”
