Men’s Tennis Competes in Jack Kramer Invitational

Nov. 6, 2017

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown men’s tennis team competed in the Jack Kramer Collegiate Tournament over the weekend in Palos Verdes, California. Five players advanced to the Round of 32, while freshman Charlie Sharton (Wayland, Mass./Wayland) reached the Round of 16.

Sharton posted a 7-6, 6-2 victory over Sebastian Hawkens from Washington in the second round of the Open Singles Draw. He was defeated in the Round of 16 by Jan Simon Vrbsky from Southern Methodist University.

Also picking up a win in the first round was Connor Lee (San Marino, Calif./San Marino), who won a close battle against Jack Davis from Washington (7-6, 6-3). Lee fell short in the round of 32 to top-seeded Thomas Fawcett of Stanford, the eighth-ranked singles player in the country.

Senior Mac Rechan (Clayton, Mo./Clayton) lost in a tough match to the eventual winner of the Open Singles, fourth-seeded Keegan Smith from UCLA, 7-6, 6-3. In doubles play, the duo of senior Rechan and freshman Sharton defeated a pair from Washington, 8-5, but then lost in the quarterfinals to the second-seeded pair from the University of Southern California. The Hoyas will return to action in January in the VCU 4+1 Invitational.
