No. 53 GW Men's Tennis Announces 2014 Fall Schedule
Colonials to Compete at Five Tournaments to Prepare for Spring Slate
July 21, 2014
WASHINGTON – The No. 53 George Washington men’s tennis team will return to action with five tournaments in its fall 2014 campaign.
The Colonials, who are coming off a banner year in which they claimed their third Atlantic 10 Championship title in four years and wrapped the spring 2014 season with their highest end-of-year national ranking in program history, put together a competitive slate that includes a pair of prestigious tournaments.
“Our schedule will follow the same events as in years past as we continue to give our team the needed tests to show it can compete with the best in the spring season,” said ninth-year Head Coach Greg Munoz. “The ITA All-American Championships and the UVA Ranked +1 Invitational are our top-level tournaments of the fall. We will put ourselves to the test early to prepare for a competitive 2015 season.”
GW opens the fall with two separate tournaments running from Sept. 19-20. 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 Buff and Blue squad who do not travel to Charlottesville, Virginia will compete at the Georgetown Fall Classic, which will be held at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus as well as Georgetown Visitation Prep.
The Colonials will then compete at the Saint Francis Health System ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma from Sept. 27 – Oct. 5. 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 do not attend the All-American Championships will head to Charlottesville for the UVA Fall Classic at the Cavaliers’ Snyder Tennis Center.
GW closes the fall season at the USTA/ITA Atlantic Regional Championship from Oct. 16-20 at Virginia. 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.
