Schorsch Continues to Scorch Competition
Sophomore Jeffrey Schorsch defeated Michigan State's Brett Forman to claim the Western Michigan ITA Summer Circuit Event this past weekend.

Sophomore Jeffrey Schorsch (Perrysburg, Ohio/Perrysburg) continued his summer success with a singles championship at the ITA Summer Circuit Event hosted by Western Michigan University. Schorsch beat Michigan State's Brett Forman 6-4, 6-4 in Monday's finals to cap off the first singles title won by a Crusader since 2012 (Eric Honert).

In his trek to the finals, Schorsch scored wins over Georgia's Paul Oosterbaan (6-3, 6-2) and Northwestern's Konrad Zieba (6-3, 6-3), both of whom are nationally ranked by Tennis Recruiting Network and were blue-chip recruits out of high school.

Schorsch also made waves at the Western Michigan tourney with outstanding doubles play, alongside fellow sophomore Charlie Emhardt (Carmel, Ind./Carmel). The duo racked up three victories before dropping an 8-7 heartbreaker in the semifinals to Indiana University's Matt McCoy and Sven Lalic. Juniors Michael Savaglio (Kenosha, Wis./Mary D. Bradford) and Daniel Oakes (Elburn, Ill./Saint Charles North) handed Michigan State's Alex Kim and Harry Jadun an 8-4 loss before falling 8-2 in their next tilt versus WMU's Michael Treis and Matt Hamilton.

Elsewhere in doubles action, junior Lucas Waak (Manitowoc, Wis./Roncalli) paired up with Bobby Hagenow to win the USTA-sponsored Bill Van Lieshout Tournament in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The tandem collected two victories before dispatching Andy and Scott Wall 6-2, 6-2 in the finals.
