Oct. 25, 2010
WILMINGTON, N.C. --- East Carolina junior David Masciorini advanced to the semifinals of the 2010 Seahawk Invitational this past weekend before losing to top-seeded Alex Wetherell of UNC Wilmington.
Masciorini defeated fourth-seeded Andres Perez of N.C. Central in straight sets to advance to the semifinals and took the first set from Wetherell. He won his opening round match against Monmouth's Jason Rothstein in straight sets.
Masciorini was one of three Pirates to reach the quarterfinals as ECU closed out the fall season Saturday. Seniors Henrik Skalmerud and Stian Tvedt also posted opening round victories to reach the round of eight.
Each senior produced a two-day record of 2-1. After bowing out in the quarterfinals, Skalmerud and Tvedt each posted a victory in their consolation match.
The senior duo teamed up to reach the semifinals of Doubles Flight A, while Masciorini joined Nathaniel Smiley to earn a spot in the championship match of Double Flight B, which was not contested.
The Pirates open their 2011 spring season on Jan. 27 against Liberty in White Sulpher Springs, W.Va.
