JERSEY CITY, NJ –Saint Peter's men's and women's tennis completed its fall season with strong showings at the ITA Regional.
"At the ITA we play some of the bigger colleges in the East that we never play otherwise," explained head coach Mike Scolamieri. "The result is that we try too hard and do not play our best, but the players relish the experience of being at the event and hopefully that experience of playing the bigger name tennis teams will help us when we play other important matches."
The Peacocks No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles on both the men's and women's sides earned the opportunity to compete at the regional.
In men's singles, Jorge Rodriguez of Saint Peter's was defeated, 6-4, 6-2, by Lampman of Army. In doubles action, Andres-Sebastian Rojas and Douglas Nover fell, 8-2, to Derek Austin and Sean Mullins from Boston College.
In women's singles, Saint Peter's Lucia Radovic was defeated, 6-3, 6-3, to Laura Gutierrez of St. Francis Brooklyn. In doubles play, Radovic and Elena Melian Puigventos were topped, 8-1, by Colgate's Fleckenstein and Hyland.
Saint Peter's concludes its fall schedule and will return to action in the Spring.
