Gustavus Adolphus sophomore Amrik Donkena (Rochester, Minn.) saw his appearance in the 2010 NCAA Division III Men’s Tennis Singles Championship come to an abrupt end with a heartbreaking 6-7, 4-6 loss in the first round to Mike Mattelson of Vassar College on Friday morning in Oberlin, Ohio.  Donkena, who saw his six-match win streak snapped with the setback, finishes his season with a record of 23-8 overall.  The NCAA Championships are being hosted by Oberlin College.

Donkena’s appearance in the NCAA Singles Championship marks the 41st consecutive season that a Gustavus men’s tennis player has qualified for the national singles draw, a feat that is unmatched by any other Division III institution.
