Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University men's and women's tennis teams recently had seven participants in the ITA Atlantic Regionals at Old Dominion University and Virginia Tech University. The highlights were freshman Victoria Sekely's triumph over Lexi Brand of Maryland, 6-2, 6-0, Michael Clarke's 7-5, 6-2 win over Peter Cognetti of St. Joseph's, Charlie Caris' victory against Penn State's Guanhau Chen 6-4, 4-6, 7-6(5) and the duo of Anthony Tan and Caris beating Richard Blumenfeld and Yan Levinski of George Washington, 8-4.

Sekely's win earned her a second-round match with the tournament's No. 1 seed, Michaela Kissell of Marshall. Kissell, who is ranked among the top 40 collegiate players, defeated Sekely, 6-1 6-0.

In doubles play, the team of Caroline Kuehn / Alex Sebia lost 8-1 to the No. 1 doubles team, Stevens/Tomljanovic of Virginia.

"ITA's are all about going against very tough competition and tough teams," Head Coach Gordie Ernst said. "Every game, every set, every match, is a learning experience for all of our players and I think our players will really grow from this weekend's matches."

During the second round of singles play on the men's side, Clarke lost to No. 5 seed Lee Signer of Virginia, 6-1, 6-1 and Caris lost to No. 7 seed Patrick Daciek of Virginia Tech , 6-4, 6-4. However, Caris led 4-2 in both sets he lost, showing some of the potential he has delivered on during the fall season.

In second round doubles play, Tan and Caris lost to the No. 6 seeded duo, Ivan Salec and Zack Watson of Radford, 8-4. Clarke and Miller also went out in the second round to Sebastien Jacques and Yoann Re, the No. 5-seeded doubles team, 8-4.

 

 

In other singles play, Tan lost a difficult 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 decision to Virginia Tech's Zack Pine and Bryan Miller fell to Benjamin Chomette of ODU, 6-3, 6-2.
