NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Columbia men's tennis team will have
an opportunity to capture both the singles and doubles titles at the ITA
Northeast Regional Championships Tuesday.
Columbia's Winston Lin will face Princeton's Matija Pecotic
in the finals after defeating St. John's Vasco Mladenov, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1. Lin and
Pecotic met earlier this fall at the NTC BJK Men's Collegiate Invitational,
with Pecotic winning a close three-set match.
Max Schnur and Ashok Narayana continue their impressive
fall, advancing to Tuesday's doubles final. Going up against Cornell's Fleck
and Nguyen, Columbia's top doubles pair came away with an 8-6 victory to earn a
spot in Tuesday's final. Yale's Powers and Hoffman will be across the net from
Schnur and Narayana Tuesday morning when play begins at 9 a.m.
Tuesday will mark the first time in program history that
Columbia will be represented in both the singles and doubles finals at the
Northeast Regional. Both matches are slated to begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
