Georgetown College men's tennis had a rough spring, but the future is bright as evident by the final few matches of the season.
The Tigers (5-14) hit the road for a trip that coach Michael Cunningham will be using as a leaping off point for next year. They started the weekend with a blanking from Indiana Wesleyan University, which at the time was receiving votes in the national poll. The Wildcats (20-10) eventually advanced to the semifinals of the National Christian College Athletic Association semifinals and the first round of the NAIA national tournament.
Against Taylor University, GC scored three points as junior Austin Colliver and senior Chris Bartlett won singles' matches and Bartlett and freshman Tristan Nosek teamed up for a win in doubles. Freshman A.J. Berk pushed Alex Jung at the five spot in singles. The Trojan needed an 11-9 win in set two to finish the match.
Georgetown College men's and women's tennis wrapped up the season this past week in Bowling Green in the Mid-South Conference tournament. Part of the week was the awards banquet during with several Tigers were honored.
A pair of freshmen led the women's team in postseason accolades by earning second-team all-conference. These teams have 10 members each and are voted on by all the coaches in the league with coaches unable to vote for their own players.
Natalie Fiepke and Shae Henry were the two Tigers on the 10-athlete second team. Fiepke finished 10-2 in singles and 9-4 in doubles this spring. She helped her team with big wins in both categories in an upset win to start the MSC tournament.
Georgetown College men's tennis takes second win in as many days. The Tigers traveled to Cumberland University and won 5-4 in the Mid-South Conference tilt.
GC took a 2-1 lead in doubles after Chris Bartlett and Tristan Nosek defeated Dylan Nelson and Jose Ortega Vela 8-6. Ryan Abell and Daniel Orr won by default.
Ryan Simms and Austin Colliver battled hard before falling 8-4 in their doubles match at the one position.
Georgetown College men traveled to NCAA Division II Cedarville University and came away victorious Friday evening.
The Tigers took two of the three matches in doubles play and then battled it out in the singles competition with Tristan Nosek sealing the win in a three-set thriller. He beat Ryan Shomo 6-4, 6-7, 6-4 as GC won 5-4.
"They all fought really hard tonight," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "This was an exciting win for these guys that have been working so hard all season."
Austin Colliver and Ryan Simms got the winning going with an 8-4 victory in doubles one. Chris Bartlett and Nosek teamed up at the two doubles for an 8-6 win over Shomo and Joel Clark.
Georgetown College men's tennis team took a tough loss to NCAA Division II Davis & Elkins. While the score appears rough, though, it was four tiebreaker matches that decided it all. The Senators walked away from the first of what could be many as the Tigers look to join DII ranks in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference with the 8-1 win.
"We take all four of the matches that went to tiebreakers and our men win 5-4, it is how crazy tennis can be sometimes," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham.
DE took a solid 3-0 lead after doubles, but needed a 9-8 win at the number one seed. Gustavo Echeverria and Ryne Least have been playing lights out for Georgetown the past several weeks, but could not break Charles Brunel and Simon Meriau down the stretch.
