ATLANTA — Georgia Tech’s men’s tennis doubles tandem of freshman Trevor McLeod and junior Scott Schnugg continued to roll on Sunday, capturing the “B” doubles title at the Georgia Tech Fall Invitational, which was held at the Bill Moore Tennis Center in Atlanta, Ga.
After dropping only two games in their first three matches, McLeod and Schnugg continued that trend with yet another dominating victory in the finals. The tandem squared off with David Nylen and Jorgen Vestli of South Alabama and jumped out to a 5-0 lead, before rolling to an 8-1 victory in the match.
In singles action, Schnugg wrapped up a successful weekend by reaching the finals of the “A” draw on Sunday morning. In the semifinals, Schnugg rallied from a set down to defeat third-seeded Clinton Jacobs of South Alabama by a 1-6, 6-3, 6-0 score. In the finals, he fell to the Jaguars’ Nylen in straight sets, 6-4, 7-5.
Tech’s other singles competitor still alive in the draw was rookie Marko Rajevac, who lost in the semifinals of the “B” draw to Clemson’s Ash Misquith in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1.
