West Windsor, N.J. – The Mercer County Community College (MCCC) men's tennis team may have been small in numbers, but that never stopped the four members of the team from making the most of their season. In the Region 19 Championship held May 1-3 at Mercer County Park, all four players advanced to the semifinals and one player emerged as a star at the highly competitive no. 1 singles spot. Freshman Brandon Davis (Woodbridge, NJ/John F. Kennedy Memorial High School) won the no. 1 singles title with a 6-1, 7-6 (1) win over Brookdale.
Davis will travel with his no. 1 doubles partner, Tyler Sincoskie, to the NJCAA Division III National Championship in Plano, Tex. May 9-15. They will be accompanied by Head Coach Marc Vecchiolla and Assistant Coach Ralph Bencivengo.
Davis was 10-3 in his Region 19 regular season matches, with two of his losses coming at the hands of opponents he faced at the championship. Davis lost 6-2, 3-6, 10-7 to Rowan’s Matt Perrone in their last regular season match, but defeated him 6-2, 7-5 in the tournament semifinals. Davis lost 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-3 during the regular season to Brookdale’s Connor Prasad, but dug deep to battle to a 6-2, 7-6 (1) win over Prasad to capture the first singles title.
