Blue doubles team reaches finals
One Michigan doubles team’s run at the Wilson/ITA Midwest Regional Championship was almost as long as the event’s name.
Sophomore Mike Sroczynski and freshman Jason Jung fell in yesterday’s doubles final at the University of Minnesota’s Baseline Tennis Center.
The Wolverine duo fell to the No. 7 Ohio State doubles team of Drew Eberly and Justin Kronauge, 8-5, in the final.
Prior to that, Scrozynski and Jung had run an impressive streak of five straight victories to reach the finals, including a win over the nation’s 25th-ranked doubles team in they country.
Jung and Scrozynski also each made it to the third round of the singles draw before falling to top-10 opponents.
Semifinal loss similar to last year
In the second-to-last weekend of fall play for the Michigan’s women’s tennis team, sophomore Tania Mahtani dropped just one set en route to the semifinals of the Wilson/ITA Midwest Regional Championshps hosted in Ann Arbor.
Mahtani defeated her quarterfinal opponent in straight sets yesterday morning, but fell short in the semifinals, losing to the tournament’s second seed, 6-2, 6-1.
Last year, then-sophomore Chisako Sugiyama also reached the semifinals of the tournament before falling in consecutive sets.
The tournament counts just for individual national rankings and doesn’t affect team scoring.
