Gophers Selected To NCAA Individuals
April 30, 2014
INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Subcommittee has selected the 64 singles players and 32 doubles teams that will compete in the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis championships and Minnesota men’s tennis junior Leandro Toledo has qualified for the singles competition, while fellow third-year players Jack Hamburg and Mathieu Froment were among seven alternate doubles pairings.
The singles and doubles competition will be conducted May 21-26 at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia, following the conclusion of the team championship, which runs from May 15-20. Georgia will serve as host.
Toledo, who is ranked No. 38 in the latest national singles rankings, has a 23-9 overall record in 2013-14 with an 18-6 mark—playing all 24 of Minnesota’s dual matches at the No. 1 position—in the spring. Toledo was one of four unanimous First Team All-Big Ten selections, going 8-3 in conference play with a 7-3 ledgers against ranked opponents.
Should the Gopher combination compete in the NCAA Tournament, it would represent the school’s ninth doubles team to qualify. They are ranked 34th in the nation and reached as high as No. 16 during the season.
