Gustavus to Host ITA Midwest Regional

Posted on July 24th, 2003 by

The Gustavus men’s tennis team will host the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Fall Midwest Regional Championships this October 3-5.

Gustavus is coming off an extremely successful spring season. The Gusties placed third at the NCAA National Championships which they hosted in May. Graduating seniors Eric Butorac and Kevin Whipple claimed the national doubles title and both players advanced the finals of the singles draw as well.

The program has now claimed 15 consecutive MIAC titles and has won 169 straight conference matches.

The three-day ITA Regional will feature many of the top players from around the Midwest. The singles and doubles regional tournament determines which athletes move on to the ITA National Championships in Corpus Christi, Texas.
