Plano, Texas.-- After the Women's team took home the school's first National Championship last week, the Men's team can now call themselves champions too. The Silver Storm dominated the tournament heading into the final round Friday morning. ASA Miami won 26 out of the 27 matches they competed in for the first four days. Coming into today the team knew they only needed to win two matches in order to clinch the Championship. The Stormers did that right away when they earned their first team point after Federico Gomez won his flight at two singles 6-0, 6-2. Nicolas Rouanet followed that up with a 6-2, 6-1 win 10 minutes later and officially clinching the National Championship for ASA Miami. 

Stormers sent all six singles flights and two of three doubles flights to the finals. Rouanet (2) and Gomez (3) were crowned singles flight champions respectively. Two doubles (Rouanet/Eric Ahren-Moonga) also won their flight in a tough, grind it out match. They dropped the first set 5-7 and came back winning the next two 7-6(1), 6-4 to end the tournament. That started the celebrating for Head Coach Brian Slack and the Silver Storm. "It's been a great ride with these kids." Coach Slack said. "They worked their tails off and they deserve all the success they've achieved this season. This is just another step to put our college and athletic program on the map in Junior Collegiate athletics. I love this sophomore class, they have definitely set the bar high for what is expected in the future at ASA Miami."

After this season there is certainly no doubt that ASA College-Miami is a tennis power house, for both Men and Women.
