BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. - The Gardner-Webb athletics department, in conjuction with head men's tennis coach Mike Griffith are pleased to announce the signing of three student-athletes that will continue their academic and athletic careers at Gardner-Webb University.

Gardner-Webb has added Blake Dunlap, Brendan Dempsey, and Stephan Martin to the roster for the upcoming 2011-12 season.

Dunlap comes to Gardner-Webb from Mooresville, N.C., where he currently attends Statesville Christian School.  Ranked in the top-30 among 18-year olds in North Carolina, he is also a member of the 2010 Who's Who and National Honor Society.

Dempsey, from Dublin, Ireland, is ranked Ireland's  #1 junior player, and was the winner of the 18 and under National Indoor Tournament.  He currently attends St. Michael's High School and plans to major in Accounting.

"One thing all of these student-athletes have in common is their excellent academic standing while in high school and that they are awesome team people" stated head coach Mike Griffith. "My experience as a coach has taught me that the most successful teams need support from their teammates, and this is what this class brings.  I look forward to next season with these newcomers and our returners."
