ATLANTA – Senior Jason Pieters captured the Consolation “A” bracket title this afternoon winning his final match over South Carolina’s G. Knorr, 6-3, 6-3, to lead the Georgia Tech men’s tennis team in the final day of the Fall Invitational at the Bill Moore Tennis Center. Pieters downed teammate Joao Menano in the semifinals, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5, before knocking off Knorr in the finals.

“Jason (Pieters) has picked up where he left off last year,” said head coach Kenny Thorne. “It was nice to see him competing out there. He had a very good weekend.”

Junior Noah Tyler made it to the finals of the “B’ singles draw and faced East Tennessee State’s Fiuri. Tyler won the first set 6-4, before dropping the next two, 6-2, 6-4.

“Noah had a good tournament,” said Thorne. “He is coming off an injury and it was good to see him play as well as he did.”

Menano and sophomore Trevor McLeod faced East Tennessee State’s Posada and Salazar in a semifinal match of the “A” doubles draw this morning. ETSU’s tandem of Posada and Salazar edged the Jackets’ Menano and McLeod, 8-4, to advance to the championship match.

“Overall I was pleased with our doubles play this weekend,” said Thorne. “I think they have a good understanding of how to play doubles and there are a number of guys who can get the job done. A lot of dual matches come down to that final point, so it’s important to have strong doubles players and I think we do.”

The Yellow Jackets will travel to Columbia, S.C., for the South Carolina Fall Classic, Friday, Oct. 17. The tournament will last three days and run all day.
