During the 2014 Little East Conference championship match against UMass Boston, Gagne earned a convincing 6-1, 6-0 win over the Beacons’ Mark Grinhaus to secure one of the Huskies’ five points in a 5-1 win.

Gagne heads into his final season with the Huskies with a 29-12 overall record in singles action, including a 14-3 mark against his conference opponents. In doubles action, Gagne has a 28-17 record.

St. John finished a strong junior campaign with an overall 11-2 record and a perfect 6-0 mark against LEC opponents. St. John won a string of 10 consecutive matches during the season, including a thrilling 6-7 (0-3), 6-4, 10-8 come-from-behind win over Endicott’s Sean McAndrews to initiate the streak. St. John begins his senior year with a 30-13 mark in singles action, including a 15-3 record against LEC opponents. In doubles action, St. John is 16-7 overall.
