Jacksonville set to David P. Hastings Memorial Invitational
Sept. 26, 2005
With her title at the Embry-Riddle Invitational, Emese Sulyos looks to continue a solid fall season this weekend in the David P. Hastings Memorial Invitational.
Sulyos highlights JU's entry into the tournament that will begin Friday at the JU Tennis Complex and run through Sunday. Six teams will be featured on the women's side while four teams will compete on the men's side. The men's and women's side will have an "A" and "B" flight.
"I'm excited about hosting this tournament," said JU head coach Jarod Camerota. "We've got some very good teams coming into town this weekend and there will be a lot of great tennis throughout the tournament."
Sulyos ran through her three matches earlier in September to wrap up the women's A flight singles. This week, she enters the tournament as the No. 2 seed in the A flight singles. Sulyos opens the tournament on Friday in the first round against Florida Atlantic's Pia Terol.
"Emese played really well two weeks ago at Embry-Riddle," said Camerota. "I'm looking forward to seeing how she plays this weekend against another top notch field."
On the men's side, Pete Wietrak looks to make another run deep into the tournament. At the Embry-Riddle Invitational, Wietrak lost in the finals of the A flight. Wietrak opens the tournament on Friday against South Carolina State's Dmitry Lamakin.
"Pete has a tough opponent, but it's going to be good preparation for the spring season," Camerota said. "Hopefully, Pete will build off of the performance from two weeks ago and have another good run."
