FLUSHING, N.Y. (April 20, 2013) – The NYIT men’s tennis team added to the list of firsts for NYIT Athletics this year as the Bears produced a 5-0 upset of the top-seeded Firebirds of District of Columbia to win the program’s first-ever East Coast Conference Tournament Championship. Sophomore Niko Jubera (La Rioja, Spain) clinched the match win for the Bears.

Leading 3-0 after doubles play, NYIT (14-8) headed into singles action looking for two more points. The fourth point of the match came at the No. 6 spot where sophomore Pedro Peixoto (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) defeated Simon Bratke 6-3, 6-0.

NYIT was leading at three singles spots but only needed one more point to earned the automatic bid to the NCAA Division II East Regional. The final point came at fifth singles where Jubera compiled a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Carlos Quiroga.

The Bears will find out their postseason fate on Tuesday, April 23 at 8 p.m. with the airing of the 2013 NCAA Selection Show on NCAA.com.
