Praibis Selected for ITA Nationals
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Senior Jakub Praibis will play second-seeded Sam Warburg of Stanford in the first round of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) National Indoor Championships at the University of Michigan. First round singles matches take place on Thursday, Nov. 4, starting at 11:15 a.m., and continue through the remainder of the day.
The tournament features 14 of the top-30 players in the country, including Praibis, who is ranked 23rd.
Praibis is 3-2 on the fall season and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Wilson/Intercollegiate Midwest Regional Men's Tennis Championships in his last outing. Warburg, ranked second overall in the ITA preseason standings, was part of the duo that won the 2004 NCAA Doubles Championships.
