MERION STATION, Pa. – Saint Joseph’s freshman Kyle Chalmers defeated classmate Tristan Boustany in the third singles flight final as the Saint Joseph’s Men’s Tennis Invitational wrapped up play on Sunday at the SJU Tennis Complex.

Chalmers topped Boustany, 6-3, 6-4, to take the third flight crown.  He reached the final via a 2-6, 6-4, 10-7 semifinal win over Matt Colonnese of Villanova, while Boustany cruised past Delaware’s Roy Cheng, 6-2, 6-3.

Jose Sierra won his first flight semifinal in a grueling 2-6, 7-6 (8), 10-8 come-from-behind victory over Delaware’s Adam Lawton, but withdrew before the final.

In the second flight, Andres Urrea reached the final, taking a 6-4, 6-3 result from Evan Andrews of Delaware, before falling to Drexel’s Dan Koehler, 6-4, 6-7 (3), 10-7.

In the top doubles flight, Sierra and Dan Barrus fell in the semifinals, as did Chalmers and Pierre Brondeau.  Sierra and Barrus went down to Lawton and Troy Beneck, 8-5, while Chalmers and Brondeau suffered an 8-7 (2) defeat to eventual champions Thomas O’Brien and Kelly Donaldson of Villanova.

Sam Cadwell and Clark Ruiz suffered defeats in the fourth flight consolation quarterfinals; Cadwell fell to Villanova’s Chris Cua, 6-3, 6-2, while Ruiz went down to Andy O’Connell of La Salle, 0-6, 6-3, 10-8.

Saint Joseph’s head coach Ian Crookenden was pleased with how his players performed in their first competition of the season.

“It was a very good tournament,” he said.  “You could tell by the number of matches that went to a supertiebreaker that it was a very competitive event.

“It was a very good performance for us.  I’m happy that all of our players who are healthy were able to compete,” Crookenden added.

The Hawks are back in action on Friday, September 27, at the Penn Invitational.
