Three Men’s Tennis Players to Represent Columbia at All-American Championships
NEW YORK - Three Columbia of men's tennis players will be in action in Tulsa, Okla. this week at the 2012 ITA Men's All-American Championship. Ashok Narayana and Winston Lin will begin play Monday, Oct. 1 in the singles qualifying draw, while Narayana and doubles partner Max Schnur will begin competition in the main draw Oct. 4.
Narayana opened the fall season with four singles wins to capture the Cordish draw at the Farnsworth/Princeton Invitational. Lin reached the finals of that tournament in the Tiger draw, topping No. 38 Vasko Mladenov from St. John's in the semifinals. The following weekend, Lin won a pair of matches at the NTC Invitational.
Narayna and Schnur opened the year with a first round win at the Princeton Invitational over Wake Forest's Jonathan Ho and Danny Kreyman, but lost their second round match. At the NTC Invitational, the duo dropped its tournament-opener to Mladenov and Hugo Morth from St. John's.
