Tennessee Men’s Tennis wins National Championship in Doubles

May 27th, 2014

Tennessee’s Hunter Reese and Mikelis Libietis joined the 1980 UT team of Mel Prucell and Rodney Harmon as national champions with a 7-6 (7-4), 6-7 (7-3), 7-6 (8-6) win over Ohio State’s fourth-seeded Kobelt and Kevin Metka at Georgia’s Dan Magill Tennis Complex. “Those tiebreakers are just the lottery,” .

The second-ranked Tennessee doubles team won perhaps the match of the entire 12-day NCAA championships Monday – a three-setter with three tiebreakers – and claimed the second NCAA men’s doubles title in Vols history.
