Skidmore Goes up Against D1 Schools in the Stony Brook Invitational

Stony Brook, N.Y. – The Skidmore College men’s tennis team put together a strong showing as the defending Liberty League Champion opened its 2011-2012 season at the Stony Brook Invitational.

The six-team field included division I schools Stony Brook, St. Joseph’s and Wagner as well as Bowdoin and Stevens Tech.


In the Flight A singles, all three Thoroughbreds in the flight reached the semifinals.  Jimmy Sherpa, Oliver Loutsenko and Luke Granger all reached the semifinals with Sherpa reaching the finals where he lost a tough match to Oscar Pena of Bowdoin 4-6, 6-4, 6-10.

In Flight C singles, Danny Knight and Miles Ransom both reached the semifinals before dropping close matches.

In doubles action, Sherpa and Alec Hoblitzell lost 8-6 in the Flight A finals after defeating the top seed in the semifinals.  In Flight B doubles, it was an all Skidmore final with the pair of Loutsenko and Alex Fromson edging out Knight and Gabe Steerman, 9-7.

“The team had one of the better openning weekend tournaments since I’ve been here,” said Skidmore coach Nate Simms. “There were huge wins in the A flight singles and doubles and solid B flight doubles. This was a stacked tournament talent-wise and everyone played well.”

The Thoroughbreds are at the Middlebury Invite on September 17.
