STANFORD, CALIF. – Seattle U men’s tennis finished play at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Northwest Regional Championships yesterday, concluding a five-day slate of tournament-style doubles and singles matches.

Seniors Alex Chan and Adrian Alvarez-Sanabria followed up their doubles win in the round of 64 with a 3-8 final against Daniel Landa and Andrei Volgin of UC Davis. The duo of juniors Emilio Monroy and Colton Weeldreyer found great success in their consolation doubles match, playing a tight match against Eastern Washington’s Manuel Balce and Mikayel Khachatryan that ended in an 8-7(5) score. To close out doubles play for the Redhawks, sophomore Billy Givens-Jensen and freshman Lars Schmassmann battled valiantly but lost 1-8 against Tommy Edwards and Matteo Fortini of Portland State. 

In the consolation singles matches, Weeldreyer handily dispatched his opponent (Eastern Washington’s Erik Grimes) 6-0, 6-2, while Alvarez-Sanabria defeated Pacific’s Toi Kobayashi in a three-set nailbiter, 5-7, 6-3, 1-0(6). Givens-Jensen had a solid first set against Tomas Kopczynski of Stanford, finishing at 3-6, 1-6, and Chan (0-6, 2-6) faced Oregon’s Evan Felcher in his own match. Finally, Schmassmann’s match against Hunter Egger of Gonzaga ended with a 1-6, 1-6 score, while sophomore Jim Bauer gave his all in a 1-6, 0-6 effort against Jackson Hawk of St. Mary’s.

Seattle U will conclude their fall season next month at the Gonzaga Fall Invitational, held in Spokane, Wash., from Nov. 8-10.
