2002 Men's Tennis Championships Preview
(From Tim Kennedy - Gustavus SID)
The MIAC menís tennis championships will be contested this weekend on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn.  The host Gusties, who are the defending champions, are considered the favorites to claim their 15th consecutive league crown.  Coach Steve Wilkinsonís squad compiled a regular season dual match record of 9-0 to run their consecutive MIAC dual match win streak to 160 (Gustavus has lost only one MIAC dual match since Steve Wilkinson became the head coach in 1971
and that was to St. Thomas in 1985.  The Gusties are 277-1 in MIAC play under Wilkinsonís direction).

St.Thomas compiled a mark of 8-1 during the season with its only loss coming to Gustavus (9-0) on April 27.  St. Olaf is currently in third place with a regular season mark of 7-2 and St. Johnís is in fourth place with a record of 6-3.  The team title is decided by a combination of points earned during the regular season and points earned during the championships.  Teams earn 10 points for each dual match win during the regular season and during the MIAC Championships, players earn two points for each win in the championship bracket and 1/2 point for each win in the consolation bracket.  The team with the highest combined point total is the conference champion. Individually, the Gusties return five defending singles champions including  Eric Butorac (#1), Nick Crossley (#2), Kevin Whipple (#3), Josh Heiden (#4) and Tommy Valentini (#5), however Butorac and Heiden will only compete in doubles this year, while Whipple will be the #1 seed at #1 singles, Crossley will be the #1 seed at #2 singles and Valentini will be the #2 seed at #4 singles.   St. Thomas, which fell only to Gustavus this season, returns Matt Kramer (the #2 seed at #1 singles) and the doubles team of Kramer and John Ryan (the #2 seed at #1 doubles) along with Tut Fuller who is the #1 seed at #4 singles and John Thomas who is the #1 seed at #5 singles.  St. Olaf returns five players that advanced to the singles final a year ago including Karl Wilbur (the #3 seed at #1 singles this year), Peder Thoen (unseeded at #2 singles this year), Brandon Hall (the #4 seed at #5 singles this year), Ted Nagel (the #2 seed at #3 singles this year) and Tom Nagel (the #4 seed at #4 singles this year).  The Oles also return the doubles team of Ted and Tom Nagel which won the #2 doubles title last year and is seeded #3 at #1 doubles this year.  Consolation champions from singles play a year ago that are returning this year include: Geoff Granseth from St. Maryís (#1), Dan Lehto from Bethel (#2 last year and playing #1 this year), John Schollmeier from Hamline (#4 last year and playing #2 this year), and Todd Scearcy from Concordia (#5 last year and seeded #3 at #5 this year).  Doubles consolation champions returning include: Jake Olson and Mark Tuchscherer from Concordia (#1 last year and playing #1 this year) and Chris Premo and John Schollmeier from Hamline (#2 last year and playing #1 this year).
