LAKELAND, Fla. (September 25, 2016) – Patrick Sell and Sami Kirberg continue to roll and will both be playing for titles Monday at the ITA South Region Championship. The four-day event is being hosted by Florida Southern in Lakeland.

Since a stumble in the main draw on Friday, Sell rattled off four-straight wins in the consolation to advance to the final. He will meet Aria Canadell of Florida Tech Monday morning.

Sell and newcomer Kirberg are a step away from playing for a national championship in doubles. The tandem’s amazing run includes upsets over second-seeded Leo Blay and Xavier Pineda of Valdosta State and fourth-seed Pietro De Silva and Thomas Salmon of Palm Beach Atlantic.

Sell and Kirberg will meet  third-seed Pedro Dumont and Alex Peyrot for the title on Monday morning.
