The two-day tournament featured host Mary Washington, GW, Liberty and Washington College. Senior A-10 All-Conference performer Matt Treadgold (Glenmont, NY/Bethlehem Central) posted three victories in the first flight of singles play to highlight action for the Colonials.
Singles play was split into four flights, while the doubles tournament consisted of three flights. GW combined to record 19 victories out of 26 singles matches and won five matches in doubles play.
Treadgold won all three of his singles matches in flight one in straight sets, topping Tim Ryan of Mary Washington (6-3, 6-1) on Friday, and Braen Anerios of Liberty (7-6(5), 6-1) and Arturo Solis of Washington College (6-4, 6-4) on Saturday. Senior Daniel Raisbeck (Bogota, Colombia/Gulliver Prep) notched his lone victory in flight one on Friday, defeating Arturo Solis of Washington College in three sets, 7-5, 2-6, 6-4.
Freshman Elliott Daniels (Hilton Head, SC) had an impressive debut winning two of three matches in flight two. On Saturday, he won a tough three-set match against Nate Hathaway of Mary Washington (6-4, 6-7(7), 6-2) and defeated Matt Rogers of UMW, 7-5, 6-3.
The Colonials had a solid showing in flight four singles on Saturday as sophomores Daniel Balke (Portage, MI/Portage Northern) and Gordon Daniels (Hilton Head, SC/Heritage Academy) combined to win four matches, all in straight sets.
