Mobile, AL – Concordia's Daniele Piludu (Cagliari, Italy) was unable to capture the Division II Singles Championship Title in the 2011 USTA/ITA National Small College Championships today. Piludu, the #3 seed, faced off against #1 seeded Lucas Jovita of Rollins College in the
championship match where he lost a tough battle 6-0, 6-2.
Jovita won the first set 6-0, but Piludu jumped ahead 2-0 in the second set thanks to an early break. However, that would be the last game Daniele would win, as Jovita took the final six games to advance to the "Super Bowl" with a 6-2 second set victory.
Piludu and the entire Concordia Clippers men's tennis team will have a few months to prepare for their next regular season match. Be sure to visit ConcordiaClippers.com for their upcoming spring schedule when it is released this winter.
