CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard men's tennis opened the 2016-17 season by hosting the Chowder Fest this weekend at Beren Tennis Center. The Crimson welcomed Illinois, Notre Dame, and Texas A&M in a meeting of some of the top programs in college tennis.

A.J. Catanzariti of Texas A&M was the Dale Junta '58 Player of the Tournament as singles champion. Texas A&M's Aleksandre Bakshi and Catanzariti also teamed to win the doubles championship.

Harvard senior Brian Yeung went 2-1 on the weekend in singles play, and 3-1 with doubles partner Michael Peters. Yeung was ranked No. 46 in the preseason ITA National Doubles Rankings. He finished the weekend with a three set singles win – 5-7, 7-5, 10-7 - in Flight 3 over Notre Dame's Eddy Covalschi, while also teaming with Peters for a doubles win over Covalschi and Matt Gamble.
