April 20, 2013
WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's men's tennis team (12-11; 3-0 BIG EAST) dropped its final match of the 2012-13 season to ninth-seeded St. John's in the consolation round of the 2013 BIG EAST Championship. The loss in Notre Dame, Ind. ends the Hoyas season and leaves GU in a tie for seventh place with Villanova at the 2013 BIG EAST Championship.
The Hoyas closed the year with a 12-11 overall record, including a 10-1 mark at the McDonough Outdoor Tennis Complex and a streak of eight straight home victories. GU earned the fifth seed in the BIG EAST Championship, the highest ever under Head Coach Gordie Ernst, after recording an undefeated regular season BIG EAST mark of 3-0.
Senior Charlie Caris (Des Moines, Iowa/Theodore Roosevelt) did his best to carry the Hoyas to victory against the Johnnies, earning wins in doubles and singles. He closed his four year career with 57 singles victories and 59 doubles wins. Caris and Casey Distaso (The Woodlands, Texas/Edmond North) won the first match of the day at one doubles 8-5 over SJU's Lampa and Mihai. Caris won his singles match on court two, the only singles match GU won in the tournament, against SJU's Mihai, 6-4, 6-4.
The doubles point went to St. John's after the Red Storm earned close wins on courts two and three. GU's Daniel Khanin (Baldwin, N.Y./Pendleton) and Reese Milner (Los Angeles, Calif./Crossroads) fell first on court three, 9-7, before SJU won the clinching match on court two, 8-5, against Alex Tropiano (Laurel Hollow, N.Y./Cold Spring Harbor) and Shane Korber (Newport Beach, Calif./Corona Del Mar).
Georgetown was down 3-0 after the Hoyas' Khanin lost on court one to Mladenov 6-0, 6-1 and Korber fell on court four, 6-2, 6-0. With four singles matches to play a Hoya comeback was in the works as Caris earned his victory. The final three matches were all close but Milner lost 6-3, 6-4 at three and SJU clinched the win.
Both Distaso and Tropiano, just like yesterday against Marquette, were up one set when the match expired. Distaso had a 7-6(5), 1-4 lead and Tropiano owned a 7-6 (5), 5-3 advantage.
