Jubb and Dennis Selected to ITA Fall National Championships
South Carolina men’s tennis players Yancy Dennis and Paul Jubb were selected into the singles main draw at the ITA Fall National Championships.
COLUMBIA, S.C.- South Carolina men’s tennis will have two student-athletes travel to Surprise, Ariz., to compete at this year’s Oracle ITA National Fall Championships on Nov. 7-11 at the Surprise Tennis & Racquet Complex.
Senior Yancy Dennis earned an at-large selection into the singles main draw of 64 while junior Paul Jubb earned an automatic bid into the main draw after winning the Carolina ITA Region Championship earlier this month.
The ITA Fall National Championship serves as the culminating event of the fall portion of the collegiate tennis season. The national tournament features 128 of the nation’s top collegiate singles players (64 men and 64 women) and 64 doubles teams (32 men’s teams and 32 women’s teams).
In its second year, having replaced the ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, the Oracle ITA National Fall Championships is the lone event on the collegiate tennis calendar to feature competitors from all five divisions (NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and JUCO) playing in the same tournament.
Jubb, the 27th-ranked singles player in the nation, has a 9-1 singles record so far this fall. Prior to a title run at the ITA Regional Championship in which he dropped just a single set, Jubb also had a pair of ranked wins at the ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., earlier this month.
Dennis, an at-large selection for the Fall National Championships, is 7-4 in singles play this fall, advancing to the quarterfinal round in singles and doubles at the ITA Regional Championship.
