Orces, Bleach Compete in Southern Intercollegiate Championships

Draws

Charleston, S.C. – Senior David Orces and sophomore Peter Bleach were selected by second-year head coach Kemper Baker to represent The Citadel tennis team at the 2012 Southern Intercollegiate Championships this weekend in Athens, Ga.

The University of Georgia will host the 45th annual tournament at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex that will feature participants from 23 different schools, including Southern Conference foes Furman, Georgia Southern and Chattanooga.

This year the tournament will be divided into as many as three singles divisions and two doubles divisions with a champion named from each division.

Orces went 13-6 in singles last season and was named first team all-conference by the Southern Conference. Both players experienced some success in fall play last year, as Orces won the flight-A men's singles championship and partnered with Bleach to win the back draw of men's doubles at the UNC Asheville Fall Invitational. Additionally Orces won flight-1 men's singles championship as the Bulldogs hosted their first Citadel Fall Invitational last season.

Results and a recap will be available Monday following the conclusion of the tournament. For more information on Bulldog tennis, find us on Twitter @CitadelSports and Facebook or visit the official website of The Citadel Athletics, www.citadelsports.com.
