Oct. 18, 2003

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Georgia Tech men’s tennis rookie Zachary Rath advanced to the quarterfinals of the “A” Singles Consolation draw, but was unable to move past that round at the South Carolina Fall Invitational in Columbia, S.C.

Rath opened the day with a win over South Carolina State’s Jiri Vasciek in the first round of the A Singles Consolation bracket. After taking the first set by a 6-4 score, Rath then fought for a tiebreaker win to claim the match 7-6 (4) in the second set. In the quarterfinals, Rath struggled against College of Charleston’s Bastain Moldehnke, dropping a straight-set, 6-3, 6-0 decision.

The Yellow Jackets’ other remaining singles competitor, freshman Jack DePaolo was unable to advance after his opening-round win in the A/B Singles draw. On Saturday, DePaolo fell in straight sets to NC State’s Matt Simeon by matching scores of 6-3, 6-3.

Full tournament results from the South Carolina Fall Invitational are available at www.uscsports.com. The Georgia Tech men’s tennis team will return to action next weekend by competing in the ITA Region II Championship in Chapel Hill, N.C., Oct. 22-26.
