Nebraska Finishes Georgia State Invite

By NU Athletic Communications

Atlanta, Ga. - The Nebraska men's tennis team sweeps doubles play and grabs some singles victories to conclude the final day of play on Sunday at the Georgia State Tennis Invite. The Huskers were stupendous in day three after not playing any matches on Saturday due to inclement weather preventing play.

Nebraska dominated on the doubles courts against Georgia Southern in both the white and blue flights. In the blue flight, Huskers duo Brandon Videtich and Bradford Zitsch narrowly edged out Georgia Southern's Rayane Djouad and Oliver Webb 9-8 while fellow Big Red teammates Dusty Boyer and Beau Treyz toppled the Eagles' Nico DeGroof and Marco Osorio 8-5. In white flight doubles, NU's Marc Herrmann and Charlie Shin ousted Georgia Southern's Christian Kerrigan and Daniel Rush 8-6 as fellow Huskers Chris Schindler and Vasileios Stavropoulos scorched the Eagles' Rafael Racy and Albert Codina Sala 8-5. 

The singles flights also provided an opportunity for the scarlet and cream to capitalize in their matches. In blue flight singles, Nebraska's Herrmann defeated Georgia State's Robert Schulze 6-4, 6-7, 1-0 (10) while Husker teammate Tom Blackwell beat GSU's Eric Baum 6-4, 6-1. Georgia State's Thomas Cook routed NU's Boyer 6-2, 7-5 while the Panthers' Jannis Koeke bested the Huskers' Andrew Dzulynsky 6-4, 6-4. 

In white flight singles, Nebraska's Bradford Zitsch outpaced Georgia State's Chinmay Handa 6-4, 6-3 as fellow Husker Stavropoulos fell to Panther Sofiane Chevallier 7-5, 2-6, 0-1 (8-10). 

Next up for Nebraska this fall is the ITA All-American Invite in Tulsa, Okla. from Saturday, Sept. 28 through Wednesday, Oct. 2.
