Incoming Hawkeye freshman Josh Silverstein came in at second in the Boy’s 18s U.S. Tennis Associate Eastern Sectional Qualifier.

He has qualified for the association’s Boy’s 18s National Hard Courts, one of the toughest tournament in American junior tennis, and the association’s National Clay Courts tournaments, also up there in toughness.

Silverstein was seeded fifth in the Eastern Sectional Qualifier and won a straight-sets victory over Fredrick Zaretsky. Currently ranked No. 18 Silverstein won in the quarterfinals over No. 11 seed Phillip Antohi and No. 9 seed Gabe Tishman before losing in the championship to second-seed Daniel Kerzeman.

Silverstein was paired with Kyle Mautner in doubles and together they beat Dylan Appel and Jeffrey Rodgers in the quarterfinals, then Gabe Tishman and Myles Schalet in the semifinals.

Silverstein has reached the semifinals in singles and doubles of the International Tennis Federation International Grass Courts Championships this summer, facing off against some of the best junior players in the world.
