DENVER – After an exceptional first month of play, the duo of Roko Stipetic and corey clark were named the WAC Doubles Team of the Month for September.
During the month, the pair compiled a 4-2 record competing in both the Wildcat Invite and the ITA Bedford Cup in the Mountains in the first two weeks of play. Stipetic and Clarke’s team also leads currently on a two-game winning streak.
It was also the pair’s first time playing side-by-side as Stipetic was in his first season with the Aggies.
The Aggie duo picked up their first victory of the season in Tucson, Arizona when they defeated Jonathan Da Silva and David Wekesa of the Grand Canyon by a score of 7-6 (7-4) in the semi-finals of the bracket of consolation.
The pair then opened the following weekend with a victory over the Montana State tandem of Max Relic and Jacob Huppin (7-5) in the Round of 16 at the Air Force Academy.
Along with the rest of the Aggies, Stipetic and Clarke are now preparing for the ITA Regional Championship in Albuquerque, NM, Oct. 13-17.
