Men's Tennis Starts Strong at the Mary Washington Kickoff Classic

Sept. 14, 2003

FREDERICKSBURG, VA - The George Washington University's men's tennis team opened its fall season at the Mary Washington Kickoff Classic over the weekend, September 13 and 14. Senior Matt Hane (Walterboro, SC/Porter-Gaud School) and juniors Matt Treadgold (Glenmont, NY/Bethlehem Central) and Jake Jopling (Wexford, PA/North Allegheny) all went undefeated in both singles and doubles play.

Hane, coming off a fantastic junior campaign, tallied one singles victory and three doubles victories while doubles partner, Treadgold, added three singles victories to go with three wins at number one doubles. Jopling opened his season with three singles victories at number three and teamed with junior Daniel Raisbeck (Bogota, Colombia/Gulliver Prep) for two wins at number four doubles.

Raisbeck, despite being a junior, is just starting his career as a Colonial and had a successful weekend in winning two singles matches to go along with his two doubles victories. Senior Brett Warner (Vienna, VA/James Madison) and freshman Daniel Balke (Portage, MI/Portage Northern) played well for GW, teaming to pick up one doubles victory while each adding two singles victories.

GW also got singles victories from freshman Gordon Daniels (Hilton Head, SC/Heritage Academy) and sophomores Marius Weigert (Hamburg, Germany/ESI International Academy) and Jason Sucoll (Simsbury, CT/Simsbury), while Daniels and Weigert teamed to pick up two doubles victories in the number two slot.

The Colonials will look to keep it rolling when they compete in the DC Metro Tournament starting on Thursday, September 25.
