TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Jose Muguruza of the Georgia Tech men’s tennis team picked up two more consolation singles wins on the final day of the Seminole Invitational in Tallahassee, Fla.
Muguruza, a senior from Wesley Chapel, Fla., came from behind in his first match of the day to defeat Florida States’ Maciek Sykut, 3-6, 6-4, 10-7. He moved on to play Clint Bowles, also of Florida State, in his second match. Muguruza came out fired up and earned a 7-5, 6-2 win, his third of the tournament after falling the first round of the main singles draw.
Senior Scott Blackmon fought hard in his only match of the day against Josh Varela of Georgia. Blackmon dropped the first set but stormed back to tie the game at a set apiece. Varela proved to have a little more left in the tank, earning a 6-4, 3-6, 10-7 victory.
“The guys fought hard and showed a lot of poise,” assistant coach Josh Hausman said. “They played well this weekend and showed signs of things to come.”
The Jackets will have a long break before they open the team portion of the schedule. They will host a double-header on January 27, 2008 against Lipscomb and Gardner-Webb at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.
