Tennis, cross country teams prepare for Invitational play

 

After concluding play at the ITA All-American Championships last week, the Stanford men's tennis team, including defending singles champion David Wilczynski, is set to compete at the USTA/ITA Northwest Regional Championships in Berkeley, beginning Thursday.

The Cardinal will join fourteen other schools, host California, Oregon, Washington, Eastern Washington, Pacific, Gonzaga, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Fresno State, Saint Mary's, Sacramento State, Santa Clara and UC Davis. The tournament will feature over 100 singles players and over 50 doubles teams.

Champions of the main draw in singles and doubles at the regional will earn a spot at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, taking place from November 3rd to the 6th at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.

Cross country

Stanford teams will race at full strength for the first time this season when they take on some of the nation's best, at Wisconsin and Pre-Nationals this weekend.

At the Nuttycombe Wisconsin Invitational in Madison on Friday, the No. 11 Cardinal men will feature Sean McGorty and Grant Fisher, who race for the first time since the Olympic Track and Field Trials in July, while providing a glimpse of the team that is expected to contend for a national championship next month.

At Saturday's Pre-Nationals on the NCAA championship course in Terre Haute, Indiana, freshmen Christina Aragon and Ella Donaghu will make their collegiate debut for No. 7 Stanford. They join All-Americas Elise Cranny and Vanessa Fraser on what should be an intriguing team to watch.
