The Clemson men’s tennis program, led by coaches Chuck McCuen and John Boetsch, continues to place players in futures tournaments around the world.
This week, Hunter Harrington advanced to the second round of the singles main draw at the Linda Bogdan Memorial Futures Tournament in Rochester, N.Y. this week. Harrington will play his second round match later this afternoon.
“I’m extremely proud of the commitment of the Clemson players playing on the circuit this summer,” head coach Chuck McCuen said. “Their development and hard work at Clemson has put them in a good position to be successful in reaching their goals on the court.”
Last week, Alejandro Augusto won three matches and advanced to the qualifying bracket in the Aceites de Oliva de Espana futures tournament in Spain.
Also last week, Harrington played in the Sargent & Collins, LLP Men’s Futures today. Harrington and partner Alexios Halebian advanced to the semifinal round of the doubles main draw in the Charlottesville Futures tournament, played at the University of Virginia last week.
