Corkery, Bruch, Pade to Compete at Indoor Nationals
Nov. 1, 2005
Senior KC Corkery and freshman Matt Bruch will compete in the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships beginning Thursday at the Racquet Club in Columbus, Ohio. Corkery and teammate James Pade will compete in the doubles competition. The event will conclude on Sunday, November 6.
Corkery, seeded seventh in the singles tournament, is 7-1 this fall after going unbeaten in six matches at the ITA Region 8 Tournament at Santa Clara. Bruch enters his first national indoor championships as the eighth seed. He was impressive at the All-American Championships in early October as he won seven of eight matches and beat five ranked opponents before losing in the semifinals.
Corkery will face Raul Morant-Rivas of Texas A&M Corpus Christi in the opening round while Bruch is matched up against Tomas Bohunicky of Oklahoma State.
Corkery and Pade face Strahinka Bobusic and Colin Purcell of Georgia in the first round of the doubles competition.
The ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships feature a 32-player singles field and 16-team doubles field for men and women, including: qualifiers from ITA Regional Championships held across the country during October, the ITA National Small College champions, the winners of the Polo Ralph Lauren All-American Tennis Championships and Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championships and at-large and wild card selections made by the ITA National Tournament Committee. Overall, more than 10,000 players from nearly 600 schools participate annually in the Wilson/ITA Regional and National Intercollegiate Championships.
