Casabon and Troost face Georgia Tech pair tomorrow

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt doubles pair of junior Jeremie Casabon and senior Siim Troost will represent the Commodores at the NCAA DI Doubles Championships in Orlando, Florida. The No. 19 Dore duo will open tournament play tomorrow in the Round of 32 against No. 30 Andres Martin and Marcus McDaniel of Georgia Tech. Due to weather in Orlando, match times for tomorrow have not yet been released.

Casabon and Troost finished 17-7 overall on the season, going 7-3 in SEC play. Notable victories for the Dores include defeats over then-ranked No. 74 Arkansas, No. 44 Mississippi State, No. 40 Texas A&M, No. 25 Kentucky, No. 18 Florida and No. 11 Georgia.
