Men’s Tennis To Finish Fall Season At Pacific

Event: Pacific Tiger Invitational

Where: Hal Nelson Tennis Courts, Stockton, Calif.

When: Friday, Nov. 1; Saturday, Nov. 2; Sunday Nov. 3

Who To Watch:

Sophomore Adam Levie and freshman Alec Adamson made a semi-final run in doubles this past weekend at the ITA Northwest Regional held in Moraga, Calif. They took out three seeded teams along the way before losing in the semis 8-6 against the University of Washington’s eighth-seeded team of Emmett Egger and Jeff Hawke.

This is the second consecutive brilliant tournament for the Levie/Adamson pairing as they won the Flight A doubles bracket the weekend prior at the UCSB classic.

They have turned out to be quite the team and will look for more as they head into the Pacific Invitational.

Did You Know:

With the semi-final showing of Levie and Adamson in Moraga, the Aggies have now had at least one player make the semi-finals of an event at all three fall tournaments. This is an impressive feat that has come against the top of the line talent that the West Coast has to offer in the NCAA.

“I feel like we’ve competed pretty well in all three,” said coach Steidlmayer. “We’ve won several different flights.”

Preview:

The Aggies head to Stockton, Calif. on Nov. 1 to play in the Pacific Tiger Invitational. The field of teams this year will include Pacific, St. Mary’s, University of San Francisco, and also Stanford University.

This tournament is the Aggies’ last tournament this fall, so that should inject a little extra incentive and motivation into the team. Everyone wants to finish well and this tournament will provide ample opportunity for UC Davis to go out on a high note this season and come into the spring session feeling very confident in themselves.

“Getting better really is a good season,” coach Steidlmayer said. “The guys’ effort level has been good.”

This is certainly true of the men’s tennis team so far this year and is hopefully only the beginning for a blossoming young team.
