Playing in his first professional tournament, Valparaiso University men’s tennis rising senior Jeffrey Schorsch (Perrysburg, Ohio/Perrysburg) has advanced through the qualifying draw of the Ursula Beck Pro Tennis Classic to the 32-player main draw, which begins today.
The Valparaiso University men’s and women’s tennis teams were both named All-Academic Teams by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) as the organization released its 2016 academic awards this week. In addition, nine Crusader student-athletes – six men and three women – were named ITA Scholar-Athletes.
Seniors Jeffrey Schorsch took home the singles title at the inaugural Valparaiso Open this past weekend before teaming up with Charlie Emhardt to clinch the doubles championship. Overall, 60 players competed in the USTA-sanctioned event held at the Valpo Tennis Complex.
