SKILLMAN, NJ (July 29) - The 'regular season' of the 2015 ITA Summer Circuit, presented by the USTA, wrapped up last weekend with play at nine sites. Next up is the ITA/USTA National Summer Championships, which will take place on August 8-11 and will be hosted by Indiana University.


The theme of the final week was repeated summer success, which included:

 

Four titles in two weeks for Curry

Texas Tech's Connor Curry (UTR: 12.94) is undefeated in 19 matches during the ITA Summer Circuit, having won back-to-back singles and doubles titles in UT Arlington and Oklahoma. Curry will enter his sophomore season for the Red Raiders in September. During the fall of his freshman campaign, Curry knocked off Baylor's Diego Galeano (then ranked No. 26 in the Oracle/ITA National Singles Rankings).

 

Katz continues summer success

USC's Zoë Katz (UTR: 10.41) won her second straight circuit singles title, losing only 20 games in her six-match stretch to the title. Katz plans to participate in the ITA/USTA National Summer Championships early next month.

 

Back-to-back Mid-Atlantic titles for Albright/Bryan

The UNC Greensboro duo of William Albright (UTR: 12.3) and Warren Bryan (UTR: 11.36) won its second straight men's doubles crown, once again as the No. 3 seed. This past weekend at Wake Forest, the Spartans only surrendered nine games en route to the title.
