Sept. 17, 2017

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's tennis team competed at the Penn Invitational in Philadelphia, Pa., this past weekend. The Hoyas faced four opponents in various singles and doubles matches. It was a good early-season test for the Blue & Gray getting a number of players involved.

Freshman Connor Lee had a good weekend going 3-0, while Michael Chen (Holmdel, N.J./Holmdel) went 2-1 and Charlie Sharton (Wayland, Mass./Wayland) was 2-0. Lee and Chen also won one match in doubles play.

Lee posted a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Nathan Brown from Yale to begin the weekend. He followed that up with a three-set 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 win against Noah Agarwal from Princeton. On the final day of play, Lee managed the 6-1, 6-1 advantage over Gabriel Rapoport from the host Quakers.

Chen won in a battle over Kabir Sarita from Princeton with a 7-6, 7-6 victory. He followed that up with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Penn. In doubles play, Lee and Chen downed a duo from Princeton by a score of 6-2.

Sharton tallied a 6-3, 6-3 win over Alan Sou from Yale on the first day. On Sunday, he managed a 6-3, 6-4 victory against Robert Smithline from Penn. In doubles play, Sharton and partner Ian Witmer (North Palm Beach, Fla./The Benjamin School) defeated a pair from Yale 7-5, 6-4.

One of the highlights from the Yale match was freshman Mark Militzer (Charleston, S.C./Connections Academy) defeating the Bulldogs’ No. 1 Ziqi Wang by a score of 6-3, 6-3.

The Hoyas will be back in action next weekend at the Joe Hunt Memorial in Annapolis, Md. The three-day event is the last until ITA Regionals scheduled for Oct. 19-22.
