2012 Men's Tennis SCIAC Championships
The Caltech Men's tennis team will be playing their first round match of the SCIAC tournament against Cal Lutheran on Friday, May 4 at 9:30 am.
The tournament is being held at the University of Redlands and Caltech will be playing on courts number 1, 3, 5, 7, and 8.
Caltech faces a formidable first round opponent in Cal Lutheran, who enters the match as the seventh ranked Division III team in the nation.
Caltech will have at least one other match at the tournament. They will play their second match of the day at 2:00 pm on Friday. If the team manages a win in either of their first two matches, they will have a third match on Saturday at 10 am.
The SCIAC tournament should be an exciting affair as five of the seven teams are currently ranked in the top 30 in the nation, and six of the seven have been ranked at some point this season.
The doubles partnership of Devashish Joshi and Luka Mernick has racked up three victories this season over non-conference opponents from Biola, St. Johns (MN), and Swarthmore.
Fred Zhao enters the tournament on the back of a comprehensive 6-0, 6-0 victory in the Beavers last regular season match of the year against Hope International.
