Posner returned to Brown this fall as a sophomore. Last year, he made an impact for the Bears in both singles and doubles. After making the team as a walk-on, Posner entered in the starting line-up during the semifinals of the ECAC Championships last fall at #6 singles. Competing against a tough Columbia squad, he won the deciding match in a huge 4-3 win for Bruno! Posner went on to hone his singles skills and finished the year with eight singles wins.

On the doubles court, he has proven to be an important asset for the Bears. In his first year, he teamed up with Chris Lee '09 to go 4-2 at 3rd doubles in the Ivy League and he picked up 18 doubles wins overall. This year, Posner has continued to improve on the doubles court. After he and Lee beat the region's #1 ranked team from Harvard, he teamed with Jon Pearlman '10 and advanced to the rd. of 16 at the ITA Regional tournament. Posner looks to continue to bring the energy and make an impact as the Bears push toward the Ivy season this spring.
