Hane and Treadgold Reach the Round of 16 at the ITA Regionals
Hane Advanced to the Third Round in Singles Play
Oct. 21, 2003
ITHACA, NY - Senior Matt Hane (Walterboro, SC/Porter-Gaud School) and junior Matt Treadgold (Glenmont, NY/Bethlehem Central) represented The George Washington University's men's tennis team at the ITA Regionals, which began on Friday, October 17 at Cornell University's Reis Tennis Center. Hane was involved in the singles tournament and teamed with Treadgold to participate in the doubles tournament.
Hane, ranked #17 in the singles draw, was trying to complete an excellent fall season that saw him go 6-1 up to this point. By being ranked, Hane was given a first round bye and then came out strong in his opening match, defeating Rowan Reynolds of Yale, 6-2, 6-3. The win set up a match with fellow Atlantic 10 player, Mario Arce of St. Bonaventure. Arce snapped Hane's 12 match winning streak last season, so Hane was looking to exact some revenge. The match would prove to be a slugfest with Arce jumping out in front winning the first set 7-6 (7). Hane came right back to tie the match with a 6-4 win in the second. The two-hour and fourty-five minute marathon was finally decided in a third-set tiebreaker that saw Arce defeat Hane 7-6 (1). Hane will get one more shot at Arce before his GW career is over when the Colonials take on St. Bonaventure on April 3.
Hane's weekend wasn't played solely in the singles draw as he and Treadgold were looking to continue their undefeated fall season. The two were seeded #11 in the doubles draw and had an easy time int he first round, beating a team from Colgate, 8-3. In the second round, they faced a team from Penn State and had little problems winning the match, 8-5. The win advanced them to the round of 16 where they took on a team from Harvard, which eventually reached the final. The match was played even throughout and the team from GW was two points from victory at 7-6, but were unable to capitalize and ended up dropping the match, 9-8 (3).
These two along with the rest of the Colonials will start their 2004 season when they host Richmond on January 18.
