Khan and Sidow Sweep Doubles Play at ECU Shootout
GREENVILLE, N.C. – Day two of the ECU Fall Shootout was a busy one for the College of Charleston men’s tennis team, as the Cougars played a combined nine singles and eight doubles matches over eight hours of action.
Each of the four CofC doubles teams played two matches on the day, and it was the tandem of Ryan Khan and Franz Sidow that yielded the greatest results. Going to work in the top bracket of competition, the duo earned wins over both Phillipe Osses-Kinog and Neal Port of Elon (7-5) as well as Jacob Dunbar and Alex Felisa of Richmond (6-1). The other Cougar pairings all split their day two slate with a win and a loss.
Freshman Alec Angradi remained hot for the Cougars in singles play, and by beating JMU’s Miljan Runic by a score of 6-2, 6-1, is the only player for the College entering day three undefeated in singles play. Jake Kusmider and Easton Thomas came away with wins as well, beating Taylor Foote of Elon (6-4, 6-4) and Will Bisset of ECU (6-2, 4-6, 6-3) respectively.
Sunday marks the final day of action at the tournament. With doubles play concluded, it will be solely devoted to singles.
