|(Seguin) - Texas Lutheran University Men's and Women's Tennis hosted its Ninth Annual Doc Skogman Invitational on Friday and Saturday at TLU's Ohlenbusch-Rinn Tennis Center and at Seguin High School and Max Starcke Park courts.|
"Our home tournament is actually a really tough tournament, possibly tougher than the 'A' Flight of the ITA Regional," said Michael Hunt, TLU's head coach for women's and men's tennis. "To reiterate that point, the person who won the men's ITA Regional went 0-3 in the 'A' Flight in our tournament. Given that, I was pleased with our competitiveness and effort throughout the weekend. "
"We won two women's doubles flights, out of the four, and we have never done that before. Part of that was due to the lightning delays and canceling the tournament early, but we still won a number of matches and beat a number of talented teams. Madison (Dyer) and M.P. (Hubert) knocked off a team from UT Tyler in their flight, for instance."
Dyer and Hubert tied for the Flight "B" doubles championship. Dyer and Hubert won a pair of matches to advance to the final. The final was called after lightning delays. Megan Dodson and Madison Starr tied for the Flight 'D' doubles championship after an 8-6 win over a squad from Concordia University Texas.
"In the singles, we had three people reach finals, and that was also encouraging," said Hunt. "M.P. was runner-up in the 'D' Flight, knocking off a UT Tyler player along the way."
"Joshua Bowman finished second in the 'H' Flight, and Josh Flores finished second in the 'I' flight - finishing second in a flight for the second consecutive week. And I was happy to see, Megan Dodson, Kaitlyn Enloe, and Jared Mason all pick up their first collegiate wins."
