Gloucester CC in 2nd at NJCAA Nationals

May 15, 2012 Plano, TX

 

The GCC Roadrunner Men's Tennis Team is currently in second place heading into the semifinal round of the NJCAA Division III National Tennis Tournament. The Roadrunners trail only Nassau CC who is even with GCC in players still alive in the main draw. GCC will square off with Nassau in two semifinal matches on Wednesday.

 

Roadrunner #1 singles player AJ Moore started the day strong for GCC winning his match over Kyle Brewster from Suffolk CC and then went on to team with Donovan Vassalotti at #1 doubles in a win over SUNY-Adirondak. Both matches were straight set wins but the competition will get tougher moving forward in the tournament for the returning All-American. Moore will face Onondaga's Ari Smith in his semifinal singles match and then will again team with Vassalotti for a match with Region 19 rival Mercer CC in the doubles semifinal.

 

Vassalotti won his quarterfinal match when his opponent suffered a severe sprained ankle and had to default. Number four singles player Vladislav Koldomasov and #5 singles Dan Hays were the other singles winners on the day. All three doubles team advanced to the semifinals.
