Mensah did not drop a set on his way to repeating as singles champion at the ITA Fall Regional for the second consecutive year. Also competing in the men's singles draw was Gabor Toth who lost a heartbreaking 3 set match in the semi-finals to the current state champion Francisco Stuardo (COD).
Emmanuel and Gabor also teamed up in doubles and won the mens doubles title defeating a very strong team from Glendale Community College (Arizona). Also representing the Eagles this past weekend in the men's singles and doubles draw were the following players...Richard Tetteh, Tyler Park, Loren Beck-Gonzales, James Bragg, Ronnie Burcker, Joel Duenas, Ben Martinez, Brian Bosquet, Jonathan Wicks and Damen Ellingson.
Amal Ben El Hadj, representing the Eagles in the womens singles draw also dominated her opponents this past weekend, capturing the women's singles title without losing a set. She also teamed up with Nicole Lessley in the women's doubles draw to capture the women's doubles title in a very hard fought 3 set final against a tough doubles team from Orange Coast College.
All four players have qualified for the ITA National Small College Tournament the weekend of Oct. 17th in Mobile, Alabama. This past weekend was an incredible tournament for the eagles and and awesome representation for the MSJC Tennis program! Huge Congratulations goes out to Emmanuel, Gabor, Amal and Nicole.
