FSU Seminoles Host Inaugural College Championship Series

September 27, 2007 10:51 AM

The 2007–2008 USTA Florida College Championship Series is off to a great start after a successful inaugural tournament, September 22-23 at the Florida State University campus in Tallahassee.

The competition was the first of five series events leading up to the 2008 Campus Championships - Florida Section in March. The USTA Tennis on Campus program gives college tennis clubs the opportunity to battle it out against other club teams in a competitive, yet social environment. With four more series events still to go before the Florida Section tournament, all teams still have the chance to finish the College Championship Series in first place!

Schedule of remaining tournaments in series:

  • October 13-14  UF Gatorbowl, University of Florida
  • November 10-11 UCF Knightro Cup, University of Central Florida
  • January 26-27  UM Ibis Open, University of Miami
  • February 16-17 University of South Florida

The two-day tournament drew 22 men's teams and 12 women's teams, totaling 68 players from four different schools in the state: Florida State University (FSU), University of Central Florida (UCF), University of South Florida (USF) and University of Florida (UF).  "FSU Club President Mike Darcy did a great job coordinating the tournament," stated Jodi Manning, USTA Florida's College Campus Coordinator.  "In addition, special thanks to UCF Club President Brent Boostrom for all his assistance with team registrations and format of play.  It's a great team effort."

For the third year, the format at the Seminole’s event was doubles with round robin play early Saturday, leading into bracket play Saturday afternoon through Sunday.  After all matches were complete, champions were crowned and points were awarded to the top finishing schools.  Below are the results.
