May 1, 2003
SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington men's tennis players senior Matt Hanlin and sophomore Alex Vlaski have been selected to compete in the 64-player field of the NCAA Individual Singles Championship in Athens, Ga., the NCAA announced today.
The singles and doubles competition will be conducted May 21-26 in Athens, Ga., following the conclusion of the team championship held May 16-20.
Hanlin will aim to become UW's first two-time All-American in his third straight appearance in the singles championship, while Vlaski will make his second-consecutive trip to NCAAs. Last year, Vlaski advanced to the second round before falling to Stanford's David Martin, while Hanlin fell in the first round to Vanderbilt's Bobby Reynolds. As a sophomore in 2001, Hanlin was chosen as an alternate and ended up earning All-America honors by advancing to the Round of 16.
The 16th-seeded Huskies will begin competition as a team versus American in the first round of the NCAA Championships in San Diego, Saturday, May 10, at 9 a.m. PT.
