SDSU's Hardt and Redondo Reach Quarterfinals at ITA All-American Championships
Oct. 10, 2003
SAN DIEGO - San Diego State seniors Felix Hardt and Ryan Redondo earned a spot in the quarterfinal round of the Icy Hot/ITA Men's All-American Championships in Chattanooga, Tenn., on Friday with an 8-4 upset victory over sixth-ranked Hector Almada and Sergui Modoc of Fresno State.
The victory moved the Aztec duo, ranked 12th nationally, into the quarterfinal round, marking the first time that a San Diego State doubles team has advanced this far in the first grand slam event of the season.
Hardt and Redondo were scheduled to meet third-ranked Zoltan Csanadi and Izak van der Merww of Old Dominion late Friday evening; however, because other matches ran long, it was pushed back to Saturday. In addition to the quarterfinal round, the semifinal round will also be played on Saturday.
