Amherst Set to Host 2002 NESCAC Men's Tennis Championship

April 24, 2002

HARTFORD, CT - Amherst College will host the 2002 NESCAC Men's Tennis Championship Friday, April 26-Sunday, April 28. Williams, which captured the NCAA Division III men's title last year, will be seeking its 10th consecutive conference title.

The tournament should feature strong competition as five NESCAC teams are ranked among the top 25 teams in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Rankings. Williams is the top-ranked team in the nation and leads the way for seven NESCAC teams ranked in the top eight of the East Region rankings. Bowdoin, Tufts, and Middlebury are ranked second through fourth, respectively. Trinity, Amherst and Bates hold spots six through eight. Wesleyan, Colby, and Hamilton are ranked in the top 20 in the region.

Seven of the top-10 ranked players in the region are from NESCAC schools, including Josh Lefkowitz of Williams, who is the second-ranked player in the region. Lefkowitz has captured two first singles titles in conference tournament play. Each of the top five ranked doubles teams in the East Region are from NESCAC schools, including the top-ranked tandem of David Ruttenberg and Rifat Perahya of Tufts.

Williams earned its 12th conference title in last year's championship. Amherst won three consecutive conference titles from 1990-92. Tufts has won three NESCAC men's tennis titles, the most recent being in 1989, while Bates captured the 1988 title.

The flighted tournament gets underway at noon on Friday at the Amherst outdoor courts. Play will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. There will be six singles flights and three doubles flights. In case of rain, play will be moved to Mount Holyoke College. Results will be available on the Amherst College web site (http://www.amherst.edu/sports/current/m-tennis/nescac02.html) with a link on the NESCAC web site. Results will be updated at the end of each day.
