“Ever since we came back from the summer, we’ve had tough workouts, tough training, and I think it definitely showed and paid off this weekend. So I’m happy,” Madregallejo said.

Madregallejo was not the only one playing for a bracket championship. Senior Andrew Goodwin was playing in the singles third bracket against Jamie Malik from Rice. Goodwin fell short in the final set with a 6-4, 1-6, 4-6 loss.

“Andrew always does a great job, competes the hardest,” coach George Husack said. “He is always very into the match and you can see it. He battles on every point. He did today what I expected, and he will need to improve on a couple of things so that today’s loss turns around and becomes a win for him in 
the future.”

Junior Becker O’Shaughnessey and senior Stuart Kenyon joined Madregallejo with the other two wins of the day. Kenyon won in straight sets, whereas O’Shaughnessey had to come back from a set down early, to win 4-6, 6-4, 6-2.

“I thought it was a very, very good tournament,” Husack said. “It was a noticeable improvement from our first week in Harvard. We had specific things we needed to work on with our game, and the guys definitely got a lot better.”

The team looks to take the energy from the weekend and build on it. Kenyon said he started slow in his match and had some fatigue from the two days of matches beforehand. He said he fed off his 
teammates yelling his name, and it helped carry him to his win.

“The energy this year is definitely something 
different,” Kenyon said.
