Georgetown Men's Tennis Travels to Penn and No. 72 Maryland for Weekend Matches

Jan. 31, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Georgetown University men's tennis team takes on two non-conference opponents this weekend when they travel to Philadelphia, Pa. to take on University of Pennsylvania on Friday at 2 p.m. The Hoyas travel to College Park, Md. to take on the No. 72 ranked University of Maryland for a noon match on Saturday.

After beginning the season two weeks ago, with victories against East Carolina (3-1) and Longwood (3-0), the Hoyas have run into some tough competition. Last Friday, senior Ted Tywang (Nashville, Tenn./Montgomery Bell Academy) and sophomore David Tillem (Atlanta, Ga./The Weber School) defeated ODU's third pair, 9-7, but several close loses doomed the blue and gray, as they fell, 6-1. Sophomore Will Lowell (Nahant, Mass./Saddlebrook Prep) registered the Hoyas' lone point, defeating Timo Gehrke, 7-5, 6-2.

Last Saturday, Tywang and Tillem defeated Navy's third doubles match, this time by an, 8-5 score. Sophomore Anthony Tan (Jakarta, Indonesia/Anglo-Chinese Junior College) beat John Waters in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2 to record the Hoyas lone point in a 6-1 loss to the Midshipmen.

When Georgetown travels to Levy Tennis Pavilion on Friday, they will face an undefeated Penn team that comes off wins against Drexel (5-2) and St. Joseph's (6-1) in the first week of play. The Quakers return four seniors and two juniors from last season's Co-Ivy League Championship team.

On the way back to the Hilltop, Georgetown will stop in College Park to help the Terrapins open the 2008 portion of their season. The No. 72 ranked Terrapins will be the second nationally-ranked opponent the blue and gray will play in as many weeks, after falling to No. 38 Old Dominion a week ago.
