GW Men's Tennis Reveals 2013 Fall Schedule
Colonials to Compete at Five Events Throughout Fall Season
June 17, 2013
WASHINGTON - Following a successful spring in which the Colonials wrapped the season as the No. 73 team in the nation, George Washington men's tennis returns to action with five tournaments throughout the 2013 fall campaign.
GW will follow the same fall schedule as last season, which includes a pair of prestigious tournaments in the UVA Ranked +1 Invitational and the ITA/D'Novo All-American Championships. During the fall of 2012, the Colonials collectively upset nine nationally ranked opponents - seven singles and two doubles.
The Buff and Blue kick things off with two separate tournaments Sept. 20-22. The UVA Ranked +1 Invitational, an annual event held at Virginia's Snyder Tennis Center, allows each participating school to enter one unranked player for every ranked player it has competing. Members of the Colonials' squad who do not travel to Charlottesville, Va., will compete at the nearby Georgetown Classic at the Hoyas' McDonough Outdoor Tennis Complex.
From Sept. 28-Oct. 6, GW will compete at the ITA/D'Novo All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla. With more than 300 competitors, the annual tournament features the largest field of any collegiate tennis championship and is comprised of three rounds of competition - pre-qualifying, qualifying and main draw play. Those who don't attend the All-American tournament will head to Charlottesville for the UVA Fall Classic at the Cavaliers' Snyder Tennis Center.
The Colonials wrap the fall season at the USTA/ITA Atlantic Regional Championship Oct. 17-22, in Blacksburg, Va., at host Virginia Tech's Burrows-Burleson Tennis Center. The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Atlantic Region includes schools located in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C. The championship is a single-elimination format and winners of the singles and doubles flights earn automatic bids to the ITA National Indoor Championship in November.
