The Gustavus men’s doubles of Adam Morgan and Brett Morse-Karzen were knocked out of the NCAA Division III doubles tournament in the quarterfinal round late Sunday evening. Morgan and Morse-Karzen lost to second seeded Matt Brunner and Matt Seeberger of the University of California at Santa Cruz by the score of 7-6 (9-7), 6-2.
Brunner and Seeberger went on to win the national title by defeating top-seeded Michael Malvitz and Julian Seelan of Kalamazoo 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4). Morgan and Morse-Karzen receive All-America honors by virtue of advancing to the quarterfinal round of the national tournament. The junior duo from Illinois will return next season to make another run at a national title.
The tournament was held in Santa Cruz, California.
