Skidmore Mens Tennis Review


Skidmore-yellow-logoWith the start of the league schedule coming up soon we look at the Division3Tennis review of Skidmore’s Mens Tennis Team.  They write:

Overview:

Skidmore has developed a reputation for underachieving over the last couple years, but I don’t think it’s necessarily deserved. Last year, they started off their season by dominating Vassar and New York before stunning Trinity (TX). They proceeded to lose badly to Wash U, for which they were judged overly harshly because of Wash U’s ranking at the time. They never got another big win (or even came close) after that, but they also never suffered a bad loss. The previous year was similar, except they didn’t actually pull off the upset over Bowdoin at the beginning of the year. Judging by their last three years and their lineup, the Thoroughbreds will be moving up either this or next year. They’re returning five out of six singles starters, have 0 seniors on their roster, and brought in a Canadian who could be good and an underrated 2-star. Overall, I would say their whole roster could use another year of experience, but, for parity’s sake, I’m hoping they prove me wrong.

Skidmore doubles team takes fourth at USTA/ITA championships


Mobile, Ala.—The Skidmore College doubles team of Nataly Mendoza and Lee Ford finished fourth at the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships at the Copeland-Cox Tennis Center in Mobile.

In the opening round, the pair upset second seeded Kristin Lim and Crystal Lim from Claremont Mudd Scripps in the quarterfinals 6-2, 7-5.  Mendoza and Ford controlled the first set and came back from a 5-1 deficit in the second set to earn the victory.  The Thoroughbreds ran in to the eventual champions and #3 seed team of Clark and Dawson from Emory in the semifinal, losing 6-0, 6-0.

In the 3rd place match, Skidmore fell to fourth seeded Chicago 6-3, 6-3 in a hard fought match. The pair battled to deuce in most sets but were unable to take control.

“Nataly and Lee represented Skidmore and the Northeast Region very well on this national stage” said coach Curt Speerschneider.  “To come in as the relative unknown and finish 4th out of 8 of the top teams in the country is pretty remarkable.  I’m really excited at the fact that that they’ve only been playing together for a relatively short amount of time.  This experience will undoubtedly make them stronger in the future.”Skidmore doubles team takes fourth at USTA/ITA championships

‘Y’ and Skidmore partner on indoor tennis courts


Following the groundbreaking this past month on a new tennis facility at the Saratoga Regional YMCA’s Wilton branch, the YMCA and Skidmore College have announced a partnership that provides a significant infusion of funding for the project while providing additional court time for the College’s men’s and women’s tennis teams.

As part of the agreement, Skidmore will make a $1 million payment toward construction of the new facility, bringing the total number of courts to eight. In return, Skidmore’s tennis teams will receive an expanded block of practice time in the fall when they compete in regional collegiate tournaments and in the spring when they play a dozen Liberty League matches and compete for the Liberty League and NCAA championships. The agreement will extend for ten years.

With construction well under way, the new courts are expected to be completed later this month or in early December.

“This partnership is a big win for the Saratoga community, the YMCA, and Skidmore tennis,” said Jim Letts, chief executive officer of the Saratoga Regional YMCA. “We’ve been planning this for some time, but the College’s participation has enabled us to really accelerate it.”

Skidmore will continue to explore ways in which it might construct its own indoor courts at some point in the future, said Philip A. Glotzbach, Skidmore president. “This is a great interim solution, and we’re delighted to be partnering with The Y in this way.”

Skidmore’s men’s and women’s teams both won their respective Liberty League championships last spring. The men’s team has won the league championship six times in the last 10 years and has gone to four straight NCAA Division III tournaments. The women’s team has gone to five straight NCAA Division III tournaments and 15 overall. The team won the NCAA Division III championship in 1998.

Gail Smith Doubles Classic


The Gail Smith Doubles Classic at Middlebury College featured several Skidmore players.  The Women’s Tennis doubles event starts with several round robin draws with a top team in each round robin advancing to the main draw..  The round robin draws are named for people who have been involved in Middlebury College tennis including former Middlebury coach and current Skidmore Men’s Coach Nate Simms.  It was only fitting that one of Coach Speerschneider’s doubles teams came out of the Nate Simms draw.  Zoe Valella and Yumi Karlshoej were unable to advance though, as they lost to Jordan Brewer and Laura Danzig of Amherst 8-1 in the main draw.  Melissa Hirsch and Delaney Scollan competed in the Gail Smith draw but did not make it to the main draw.  Tory Engros and Molly Nolan (Helen Motter draw); Nataly Mendoza and Lee Ford (Nancy Olsen draw); Robyn Baird and Alex Smith (Jackie Ross draw) failed also failed to make it to the main draw.

The big local college tennis story of the tournament was Skidmore’s Oliver Loutsenko.  Oliver was block seeded 5-8 (the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th seeds are considered the same for seeding purposes).  Oliver started out with a win against Greg Jacob of Mount Saint Mary’s (MSMC) by a score of 6-1, 6-0.  Next was a win over Cruz (TCNJ) 6-3, 6-3, followed by a win over MYU’s Steven Wu 7-6 (9), 6-2.  Then, on to top seed Andrew Guzik who Oliver beat 6-3, 6-1.  In the semi finals, Oliver avenged teammate Jimmy Sherpa’s loss to Harveer Bhalla 7-6 (0), 6-4.  He finally lost in the finals to Perepelov but put up a good fight.  The final score was 6-4, 7-6 (4).  I am not surprised to see Oliver do well, having seen him many times in the juniors and having coached him at zonals.

Following up on Recent Boys Sectionals – Men’s College Tennis


A few years ago, I remember walking into Central Park for Boys Sectionals and one of the first things I saw was Matt Kandath, Derrick Angle and Bryan Chow walking together.  Of course, one of the last things I saw that year was Bryan Chow, Derrick Angle and Matt Kandath because they were the top three players in the area.  During their High School careers they represented the area well at states with Matt winning singles at states twice which I was lucky enough to see as both a spectator and as his high school coach.  Derrick was able to win the backdraw, after getting a tough first round matchup.  He followed up in his senior year with a good run in the main draw.  Bryan teamed with Chris Frost to make it to the semi finals in doubles in one of the craziest years at states.  Rain caused the matches to be backed up so much that they did not play the first day and the doubles teams had to leave for their matches on the second day at 5:00 in the morning.  These players are now playing college tennis.  Derrick and Chris are playing at Middlebury College in Vermont, Bryan is playing at Williams College in Massachusetts and Matt is at Stanford.

Derrick Angle
Chris Frost

We start our update at Middlebury College.  Chris Frost is an incoming Freshman, while Derrick is a Senior.  Last year Middlebury was ranked as high as #1 in the country.  They finished they year ranked #9 nationally and #3 in the Northeast – in Division III. Derrick was tied for 30th in singles in the Northeast and, along with partner Michael Malhame of Douglaston, NY 16th in doubles.  The season started with the Middlebury Invitational.  Derrick played in the “A” Flight and started out with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Skidmore’s Luke Granger.  Next up was fellow Middlebury Panther Brantner Jones.  Branter won 6-4, 3-6, 10-8.  Chris Frost was the #2 seed in the “D” Flight.  He had a first round bye which he followed up with a second round win over Max Bevan of Skidmore (3-6, 6-4, 10-6).  Then it was a 6-0, 6-2 win over Dylan Reffe of Bates before losing 4-6, 6-2, 10-8 in the finals to David Myers of Trinity.In the “A” Flight doubles Derrick teamed with Alec Parrower.  They had wins over Jimmy Newton and David Anderson of Ithaca (8-1); Matt Bettles and Timmy Berg of Bates (8-6); Jimmy Sherpa and Alec Hoblitzell of Skidmore (8-6) before losing in the finals to teammates Andrew Lebovitz and Brantner Jones 8-2.  Chris Frost teamed with Peter Heidrich in the “B” Flight doubles.  They lost Gabe Steerman and Danny Knight of Skidmore 8-5.  In the ITA Regionals at Williams College Derrick again drew a seed, but this time it was the top seed Felix Sun of Williams.  Sun won 6-3, 6-3.  In the doubles, Angle and Parrower started out with an 8-3 win over Danny Sharon & Ned Terrace of Wheaton.  They took out Will Petrie and Kevin Shallcross of Williams 8-6 next and Matt Caroll / Jack Bryant of Colby Sawyer 8-3.  Then they lost again to Felix Sun and partner Matt Michelli.

Bryan Chow

The ITA Regional doubles was won by Bryan Chow and Williams teammate Trey Meyer.  They beat Jonathan Cypers and Justin Reindell of Amherst 8-2; Blake Maurer and Chris Hoffman of the United States Coast Guard Academy 8-6; Matt Bettles and Timmy Berg of Bates 8-6; Andrew Lebovitz and Brantner Jones of Middlebury – the top seeds – by a score of 8-2 and in the finals – Sun and Michelli 8-4.  The 5-8 seeds were block seeded (they are all ranked 5-8 instead of one being 5, one being 6, etc).  Angle/Parrower & Bettles/Berg were seeded 5-8.  Chow and Meyer were seeded 4th.  In the singles, Bryan played Ben Barad of Tufts in the first round and came away with a 6-3, 6-4 victory.  Jugal Marfatia of Trinity was Bryan’s next victim.  Bryan won that match 6-3, 6-1.  He lost in the third round to a 9-16 seed – Timmy Berg of Bates – by a 7-6 (2), 6-4 score.  Williams also played two matches beating MIT and Wesleyan both by 8-1 scores.  In the MIT match Bryan played at #4 and beat Larry Pang 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 and in doubles he paired with Richard Meyer for a 8-3 win over Matthew Skalak and Edwin Zhang.  In the Wesleyan match Bryan beat Alex Hirsch 6-2, 6-1  and teamed with Meyer again to beat Jeff Legunn and Stephen Monk 8-1.  Next up is next weekends Dartmouth Shootout.

Out west, Stanford is coming off a season that saw them ranked #7 in Division I at year end.  The Stanford season starts Monday with the ITA All American Championships, then moves on to the Battle of the Bay Classic the following week, followed by the ITA Northwest Regional Championships.  Check back for results.  We will be doing a Kandath College Tennis update soon featuring Matt Kandath (Stanford Men’s tennis) and Sarah Kandath (Brown University Women’s tennis).
