KEARNEY, Neb. (GoThunderWolves.com - Oct. 3, 2010) - In a bizarre morning of championship tennis, CSU-Pueblo's Anthony Breitenbach was one of two semifinalists to suffer an injury default loss in their match, ending the Pack sophomore's bid for an ITA title.
Facing perhaps the RMAC's top singles player in Western New Mexico Yair Banuelos, the top seed in the ITA Central Regionals, Breitenbach fell 6-0 in the first set before his arm tightened up in the second set, ending his day.
Coincidentally, on the other side of the bracket, an injury default also decided the victor.
Breitenbach was one of many bright spots for CSU-Pueblo in the ITA Regionals, qualifying for the doubles consolation championship with partner, Ivan Aragona. Freshman Saul Shrom also was strong, winning the consolation championship in the tournament.
