Mercyhurst tennis standout qualifies for U.S. Open National Playoffs

Advancing from a field of nearly 1,000 competitors, Mercyhurst College senior tennis standout and Erie native Keith Whittingham has qualified to participate in the U.S. Open National Playoffs.

Ranked No. 2 in the NCAA Division II Atlantic Region, the Lakers' No. 1 singles/doubles player reached the finals of the Northern Section Qualifying Tournament in Sartell, Minnesota, last month to qualify for one of the top 16 berths in the U.S. Open Qualifying Tournament to be held July 22-25 at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Atlanta, Ga.

One of 859 participants, Whittingham advanced to the finals of the Northern Section Qualifying Tournament without dropping a set before falling to Tony Larson (6-2, 6-3). He earned his spot when Larson was unable to compete in the Men’s Championships.
