Tennis Set to Host Finch Family Islanders Blue-Green Match on Saturday

CORPUS CHRISTI – The Texas A&M – Corpus Christi men's and women's tennis teams will take part in the annual Finch Family Islanders Blue-Green Intrasquad Match at 10 a.m. Saturday morning at the Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center. The match, which will be sponsored by the Chad Finch Family, will determine the pecking order for next weekend's ITA Regionals, which will be hosted by TCU in Fort Worth, Texas on the men's side, and by Baylor in Waco, Texas for the women.

"I'm very grateful for Chad Finch and his family for sponsoring this match," Director of Tennis Steve Moore said. "They are out at every one of our home matches, and are outstanding supporters of our program. For them to step up and sponsor our intrasquad match is special for our team."

This will be the final tune-up for the Islanders before the ITA Regionals, which will serve as the culmination of the fall tennis season. It has been a tremendously successful season for both the men's and women's tennis programs, highlighted by Peter Nagy taking home the men's singles titles at both the Marco & Co. Catering Islanders Open and the Rice Invitational.

"Peter Nagy has obviously been the standout performer for our tennis teams, but what has impressed me the most is our performances up and down our lineup," Moore said. "It hasn't just been the veterans like Sandra Burges, Stefania Nicolae and Matt Westmoreland – our freshmen have really impressed me and they are not only turning in great results, they are pushing the upperclassmen to even greater heights.

"Saturday's Finch Family Islanders Blue-Green Intrasquad Match should be a great event for our team and for all of our outstanding fans in the Corpus Christi community. I know Chad and his family will enjoy it."
