Men's Tennis Takes on Navy in Day Two of Navy Invitational
Oct. 9, 2010
ANNAPOLIS, MD - The George Washington men's tennis team won three of four doubles matches and seven of eight singles matches in the second day of the Navy Gold Invitational at the USNA Tennis Courts.
"Day two, they made a real impression on me. They showed me how tough they can play and the score said it all with GW winning on day two 10 out of 12 matches," said head coach Greg Munoz. "Day three I expect nothing but the same."
Senior Christopher Kushma and Alexander van Gils won their No. 1 doubles match over Navy's Owen Bullard and Nicholas Gutsche 8-4, to go 2-0 in this weekend's tournament action. Van Gils went on to win his No. 1 singles match over Bullard, 7-5, 6-4, while Kushma fell by the same score to Marcus Rebersak.
"Alex van Gils continues his solid play winning all 4 of his matches so far," said Munoz. "This tournament is great because it gives the freshmen an understanding of what college tennis is. With four doubles and eight singles, it gives you the feel of a dual match without being a dual match."
The Colonials will take on UMBC in the final day of the tournament at 9 a.m. at the USNA Tennis Courts.
