Boys' 18 Clay Court Updates
At Godfrey, Illinois, nice present, former and future Illini are taking part in the Futures tournament this week; Ryan Rowe, Dennis Nevolo, Bruno Abdelnour, Stephen Hoh, Blake Bazarnik, Tim Kopinski, Farris Gosea, Brian Page and Alex Jesse.
At the Godfrey Futures, Rowe, Hoh, Hoh, I mean Kopinski, have all advanced to the 4th round of qualifying. One more win and they get in the main draw!
At the USTA Boys' Clay Court Championships, Hiltzik was leading 6-4, 3-1 in the championship match when the rains came. It never let up so the match was abandoned. A lackluster end but Hiltzik made both the singles and doubles finals and made the Illini Nation proud!
