    All-Trojan Singles Title Match Ahead At SoCal Intercollegiates

    Oct. 30, 2016

    LOS ANGELES, CALIF. — It will be an all-Trojan singles title match at the Southern California Intercollegiate Championships tomorrow, with a chance for a championship sweep as USC also has a doubles team in the mix for the final rounds of the long-standing SoCal event, held this year at USC’s Marks Stadium.

    Three Trojans were in action in today’s singles semifinals, guaranteeing that at least one USC representative would have a spot in the singles title match. USC senior Nick Crystal punched up his place in the final round with a 6-3, 6-4 win over UCLA’s Max Cressy, while an all-Trojan semifinal took place on the other side of the draw. There, freshman Brandon Holt upended USC teammate Thibault Forget with a 6-3, 7-5 decision to launch into an all-USC singles final that pits senior Crystal against freshman Holt for the singles crown. 

    Meanwhile, two Trojan duos were in action in the doubles semis today. No 3 seeded Rob Bellamy and Forget were edged out by top-seeded Sendegeta/Thomson of Texas Tech. That puts the Texas Tech duo up against USC’s Holt/Riley Smith in the final. Freshman power pair Holt/R. Smith delivered an 8-5 win over LMU’s Bohuslav/Brown in today’s semifinals to score a spot in tomorrow’s doubles final
