Men's Tennis Wraps Up Fall Season at ITA Southeast Regional

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The Franklin & Marshall men's tennis team wrapped up its fall season at the ITA Southeast Regional Championships on Saturday. The Diplomats saw several players bounce back in the consolation rounds after tough opening round draws on Friday.

During singles play on day two, both Isaac Rockower and Anthony Casale notched victories. Unfortunately for Rockower, his opponent was unable to compete in the Blue 2 draw and so he received a walkover win to cap his weekend of singles action. Casale picked up a win during his consolation match in the Blue 3 singles draw. He defeated Lynchburg's Lauren Muhlhaus by an 8-6 score.

Rockower was also active in the doubles portion of the tournament. He teamed up with Gonzalo Gentou where they were selected to compete in the championship doubles draw. After dropping an opening match on Friday, the Gentou/Rockower pairing finished their weekend together on a high note with an 8-6 victory over Virginia Wesleyan during the consolation rounds.

The 2022 ITA Southeast Regional Championships marked the final event of the Diplomats' fall season. The team will turn its attention to dual matches in the spring where F&M is currently slated to opening the season in February. A finalized schedule, including the team's annual spring break trip, will be available in the coming months.
