Oct. 25, 2010
WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's tennis team closed out its fall season this weekend competing at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Regional Championship. The Blue & Gray had players competing in singles and doubles at the event which includes 12 Division I regional championships and over 8,000 student-athletes.
Junior Andrew Bruhn (Storrs, Conn./E.O. Smith) and classmate Michael Clarke (Maraval, Trinidad and Tobago/Saddlebrook Prep) had the top performance of the weekend advancing to the quarterfinals in the doubles draw made up of 64 pairs. Clarke and Bruhn opened play defeating a pair from the University of Maryland, 8-5.
The duo then knocked off the fourth-seeded team of Sebastien Vidal and Ben Hoogland from William & Mary, 8-3. Bruhn and Clarke lost in the quarterfinals, but the run marked the furthest a squad has gone at ITA Regionals under Head Coach Gordie Ernst.
The Hoyas had four players compete in singles play, however, none managed to make it beyond the round of 128.
Georgetown has finished up fall play, but will return to the courts in January to begin the spring portion of the season.
