This is according to a statement on the UNCW website, which said, “Richard ‘Trey’ Mallory of South Hampton, Bermuda, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play men’s tennis next season at UNCW.

“Trey has a huge amount of international experience in the ITF’s and Davis Cup,” said Mait DuBois, UNCW’s veteran head coach. “He was able to reach a fairly high world ranking without the benefit of getting his final year in the juniors.

“We were most impressed with Trey after speaking with a number of his coaches. Everyone spoke very highly of his character, work ethic and his potential. We are extremely excited to have Trey join us next fall.”

“Mallory is the top-ranked junior player in Bermuda and has reached an ITF world ranking of 492. On May 28, 2018, Mallory became the youngest player from Bermuda to win a Davis Cup match and the first Davis Cup player to win in his debut.

“Mallory will be the program’s first player from Bermuda since 2000 and only the third overall. He joins Jonathan Ingham [1995-99] and James Collieson [1998-2000] as the only players from Bermuda to wear a Seahawk uniform.”
