***19 year old Soufiane Arzagui came to Toronto from Morocco at the age of 10 and a half. Over the next 7 years, Soufiane developed as an excellent tennis player winning singles and doubles titles at the national and ITF level as well as maintaining a high academic level at Bateman High School in Burlington. After six years at the ACE tennis Academy he fulfilled his objective of receiving a scholarship to an Ivy League school, Brown University in September of 2010.  Soufiane will be blogging us on a regular basis about his freshman season.***

Our last match against Yale ended our Ivy quest and our season this year! We battled through until the last minute and cruised to a 6-1 victory, with both seniors winning their final matches as Brown Bears. Brandon and I won the doubles 8-4 over an undefeated team up to that point and both he and I won our singles, mine being an easy 6-1 6-0 victory and him taking out a great player 6-1 in the third set. Following the matches, we both found out we got Second Team All Ivy Honours in Doubles with Brandon also winning Second Team All Ivy Honours in singles and Ivy Rookie of the Year! Real proud of my doubles partner 🙂 Here’s to a great freshman season and see you guys next year. Time to work hard during the summer! Go Bears !
