Thompson Falls in the Oracle ITA Masters in Malibu
MALIBU, Calif. – Former SoCon men’s tennis Player of the Year Connor Thompson (Atlanta, Ga./Holy Innocents) took the court in the Oracle ITA Masters Friday afternoon in Malibu, California in a tournament hosted by Pepperdine University.
Thompson took the court against Northern Arizona’s Tim Handel in the consolation round of the tournament. The senior Spartan suffered a 7-5, 6 -1 defeat to the two-time Big Sky Player of the Week in 2017. The tournament finishes tomorrow as the remaining teams and players will compete for the third-annual Oracle ITA Masters in Malibu.
Thompson will return to the court with his fellow Spartans at the ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma next weekend.
