Corkery Advances to Singles Finals of ITA Region 8 Tournament
Oct. 24, 2005
KC Corkery advanced to the singles finals at the ITA Regional Tournament in Santa Clara, today while teammate James Pade lost his semifinal match, ending a possible all-Stanford final. Instead, Corkery will play in tomorrow's final beginning at 11:00 am.
The number one seeded Corkery defeated John Nguyen of Cal Poly 6-4, 6-2, while the ninth seeded Pade fell to the number two seeded Alex Slovic of Washington, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. It was a tough loss for Pade after playing brilliantly the entire tournament.
It is fitting that the number one seed Corkery will face the number two seed Slovic in tomorrow's championship, the winner receiving a bid to compete in the National Indoor Championships on November 3-6 in Colombus, Ohio. At last year's championships, Corkery posted a 4-1 record, winning the consolation bracket.
