TOURNAMENT DRAWS/INFORMATION

MOUNT UPDATE
The Mount St. Mary's duo of Jackson Wood and Parth Sharma took home the title at the Mount St. Mary's Invitational this past weekend. The tournament format had a pair of players play a best-of-three that included a doubles match and two singles matches. Wood and Sharma advanced to the finals with a 3-0 victory over Mercyhurst's pairing of Ruairidh Fraser and Kiran Richards. In the other semifinal, the Mount's Jean Armstrong and Evan Hine were edged by Mercyhurst's other doubles pairing Cormac McCooey and Unai Amiletta Gonzalez by a 2-1 score. An injury from Mercyhurst's Cormac McCooey kept the Lakers' duo from competing in the finals, giving the title to Wood and Sharma.
