Valdosta, GA - Daniel Dueren and Christian Hansen advance to the USTA/ITA National College Championships in doubles play based on the duo’s regional championship. Unfortunately, the team fell to top seed Armstrong Atlantic State in the championship match, 7-6 (4), 6-3.
But the Blazers did take down two teams on the way to the championship round. Hansen and Dueren demolished their first opponents from Flagler, Controne and Ramirez, in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2.
The second round proved more difficult for the team, as they lost a tie breaker in the first set and were pushed to a third set. Boldarev and Piludu of Concordia fell to Hansen and Dueren, 6-7 (2), 6-2, 10-8.
With the fall championships over, the tennis team can prepare for NCAA action in the spring.
