TAMPA – The Bulls gained championship experience Tuesday at the USTA/ITA Southeast Regional in Atlanta.
Sasha Gozun, the eighth-ranked freshman in the nation, lost to Georgia junior Nathan Pasha, 6-2, 6-1, in the singles championship match, while Oliver Pramming and Ignacio Gonzalez-Muniz lost to FSU’s Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, 8-2, in the doubles title match.
“Overall it was a superb week for us to have three teams in championship matches,” assistant coach Brandon Wagner said. “We’ve been building upon teamwork while practicing really hard this semester and it showed. I was really happy to see some of that hard work pay off.”
USF continues its fall season Friday, Oct. 25 at the Pensacola Futures Pro Tennis Circuit event that serves as a great source of motivation for the aspiring Bulls.
“The guys are really excited to play in a professional tournament in Florida,” Wagner said. “We plan on getting back to work in practice and then we’ll head out there to build upon the positive things they did this weekend.”
