Brett Seaton of Manhattan tied for seventh place at a national tennis tournament this past weekend in Springfield, Mo. He participated in the 12-and-under boys’ singles division.
Seaton was allowed into the tournament — which was one of four national tournaments open to the top 128-ranked applicants from around the country — as an alternate because of a last-minute withdrawal of another player. He won his first round against Logan Chang of Old Westbury, NY, 6-0, 6-0, and then lost in the second round to top-seeded Alan Yim of Bellevue, Wash., 6-2, 6-1.
On the back side of the bracket, Seaton defeated Kemal Aziz of Staten Island, NY, 6-3, 6-2; Dorath Chamarthi of Bloomington, Ill., 6-4, 6-3; and Sam Dobbs of Sioux Falls, SD, 6-3, 6-3. Seaton fell to Kamran Farid of Columbia, Mo., 6-0, 6-3 in the consolation semifinals to end in a tie for seventh.
