Sorry for the short post but its been a long day at the ITA’s in Mobile AL. Today is the stressful play-in day of the tournament. Basically the PNW and Texas share a spot in the tournament so the two regional winners arrive a day early for one match play-in.
In singles Colton played Aaron Skinner from Trinity. I was really impressed with how Colton played and actually dictated play. Unfortunately Colton came up a bit short losing 6-3, 6-4. Funny how tennis goes — in the first set 6 of the 9 games went to deuce and Colton was only able to win one of those games. Great effort from the sophomore.
In doubles James and Andrew also played against Trinity. In the doubles JAVA continued their strong play only getting broke once, cruising to a 6-3 6-3 victory. Really a fun match to watch as both Whitties returned well and played aggressive doubles.
By winning their play-in match JAVA is now guaranteed 3 more matches. Tomorrow they play at 1pm and 5pm. I will have Colton twitter the match.
