Men's Tennis Continues Play at Tiger Fall Classic

Sept. 25, 2004

STOCKTON, Calif. - The Santa Clara University men's tennis program continued action at the Tiger Fall Classic, hosted by the University of the Pacific at the Hal Nelson Tennis Courts.

A.J. Kerrin will play Will McAllister of Sacramento State for the Flight C singles title, while fellow freshman Tyler Wilson will face Hornet Assad Malik in the consolation singles final of that same flight.

In doubles action, all five Bronco tandems advanced to Sunday's semifinal round. Blane Shields and Chris Iwamura will face teammates Ben Hidalgo and Bobby Rasmussen in one of the matches in Flight B.

"It was a long day and we were a little unlucky with the three-set matches, but be got a lot of tennis in and we're ready for more success tomorrow," head coach George Husack said.

Santa Clara remains at the Tiger Fall Classic through Sunday. The tournament is the first of six the Broncos have scheduled for the fall. Next week, Santa Clara will attempt to qualify for the ITA All-American Championships in Chattanooga, Tenn. Other events are as follows: SCU Bronco Classic October 8-10 at the Degheri Tennis Center, the ITA Regional Championship October 22-26, the Southern California Intercollegiate November 3-7 and the Milwaukee Tennis Classic Nov. 3-8.
