May 28, 2004

TULSA, OK-Clemson’s doubles team of Jarmaine Jenkins and Nathan Thompson defeated Joey Atas and Jeremy Wurtzman of Ohio State 6-4, 7-6 in the NCAA Individual Doubles Tournament Round of 16 at Tulsa, OK Friday afternoon.

Since Jenkins and Thompson have now reached the quarterfinal round, the pair has earned All-American honors. This is the first time since 1989 that the Tigers have had a team to reach the final eight in the NCAA Individual Doubles Tournament.

This is also Clemson’s eighth doubles team in the history of the program to earn All-America honors. The last doubles team to be named All-American was Mitch Sprengelmeyer and Bruce Li in 1996.

Jenkins and Thompson will play Richard Barker and William Barker of Rice Saturday. Barker and Barker are seeded first in the tournament and are ranked number one in the nation.

Jenkins and Thompson now have a 23-19 record overall as a doubles team.
