By jorge hernandez of BERGEN COMMUNITY COLLEGE



Paramus, NJ – Bergen Community College’s Men’s Tennis Team won the 2013 Region XIX Championship on Saturday, May 4th.  This is the second Region XIX Championship; the first championship was won in 2005.  Head Coach Sal Guillen was named Region XIX Coach of the Year for the second time in his career. 

In the beginning of the season, Coach Guillen had said that this 2013 Men’s Tennis Team was just as good as the 2005 team that won the first Region title in Bergen’s history.  The team’s record this year is 9-2 going into the Region XIX Tournament.  They had lost both team matches to Gloucester County College (10-0), who was the 2012 National Men’s Tennis Champions.  The Bulldogs brought their “A” Game to the Region XIX Tournament as they tallied 19 team points to win the Region.   The important wins were early in the tournament when sophomore, Keith Lee defeated Gloucester’s Donovan Vassalotti in three sets which gave Bergen an important point.   The Tournament came down to the wire as Bergen needed to win their final doubles match against Gloucester CC.  The doubles were played by Sophomore Dan Winters and Eric Shapiro.   They won the first set 6-4 and clinched the Region Title in the second set when they defeated Gloucester’s Tim Durham and Aaron Williams 6-3.
