The men’s tennis team did well in the Mason Fall Invitational, advancing at least one team member from each of the three flights to Sunday’s tournament. Due to inclement weather, the Sunday championship was canceled and will not be rescheduled.

George Mason University’s men’s tennis has officially begun its fall season. The Mason Fall Invitational took place over the weekend.

However, it was cut short. Originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11 and Sunday, Sept. 12, the second day was canceled due to rain.

In Saturday’s play, it was a home match for the Patriots as they squared off against the Greyhounds of Loyola and Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers. Mason fared well in the flighted-style tournament.

One Mason team member from each of the three flights advanced to Sunday’s championship groupings. Jorge Osuna and Patrick Mulquin advanced from Saturday’s Flight A and Flight B, respectively.

Two Mason players won Flight C, which means they would have played each other in the championship round. They are Mike Phaup and Steve Hyre, both freshmen.

Two Mason doubles teams also qualified to play in the tournament’s second day, out of three possible.

One of those teams is Phaup and Hyre, who would have battled to win their singles group. The other doubles team is McMillen and Borsanyi.

According to Head Coach Gary Quam, the missed day of play will not be made up.
