Crawford, Jachuck and Schmitz


No it’s not an Accounting firm. It’s Jake Crawford (Clinton, New York) who plays for the University of Chicago; Josh Jachuck who plays for The Unversity of Rochester and Rob Schmitz who plays for Saint Lawrence University.

Jake started his year at the Intercollegiate Tennis Associations (ITA) Division 3 (D3) Regional Tournament where he won his first round matchup with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Illionois Wesleyan’s George Alex.  Casey Cempre of Denison was his next opponent.  Jake beat Cempre 6-0, 6-2.  Cempre was the 18th seed at the tournament.  In the next round he took on 5th seeded CJ Williams of Kenyon and won 6-4, 7-5.  He lost to 16th seeded Eric Clawitter of Case Western (6-3, quit).  There was no other school tennis scheduled for the fall for the University of Chicago.

Josh had only 1 loss in singles this fall, a 6-4, 6-2 loss to Zach Lipson at Ithaca.  Josh survived a 3 set match against Mackenzie Park of Elmira when the team played Oneonta.  After losing the first set 7-5 he came back to win the second and third sets 6-2, 6-0.   Josh’s season resumes on March 6 when Robert Wesleyan College comes to the Lyman Center Courts.

Rob Schmitz had mixed results in the fall for St. Lawrence.  His closest matchup was a 6-1, 0-6, 14-12 win over Jordan Petit of Hamilton College.  His other 3 wins in singles were all in straight sets.  He played #1 doubles with John Megas.  His 2 wins were both by 9-8 scores.  The team travels to Ithaca on March 2nd for the start of their spring season.

Watch for updates on all of these players here when the spring season starts.
