Jackson-Short Fall in QuartersOctober 19, 2003 · MT Media Relations
Jackson-Short lost to top-seeded and fourth-ranked Andrew Colombo and Gabor Zoltan Pelva of Auburn. Jackson did not have his usual energy for the match after he and teammate Kai Schledorn were both hospitalized Saturday night with a viral infection. Weak and dehydrated, Jackson gutted out the quarterfinal match with partner Short Sunday afternoon.
"Kirk and Trevor played real well in the tournament. It's a shame," Blue Raider head coach Dale Short said. "The illness really weakened Kirk, and once Auburn got ahead, he just didn't have the energy to put up much of a fight."
The Blue Raiders finish the fall season next weekend at the Tulane Invitational in New Orleans, La.
