For the Aggies, returning players Adam Luba and Alec Haley each competed on their home court, where they were joined by incoming freshman Bryce McKelvie.

In singles play, Luba won his first round match, 6-1, 6-2, and advanced again with a 6-3, 6-3 victory before facing the tournament’s No. 1 seed in Sunday’s third round. Luba was defeated 6-2, 6-1 in that match.

Haley also advanced to the third round by winning his first match, 6-3, 6-2, and coming out ahead 7-5, 6-4 in the second round.

McKelvie earned a bye through the first round and won his second round match, 6-7, 7-5, 10-6, on Saturday before falling in the third round.

McKelvie and Luba also paired up to advance to the third round in doubles, winning 8-1 in the first round and 8-6 in the second. They were bounced 8-3 in the third round.

Haley also played doubles, but not with an Aggie teammate. His squad won 8-4 in the first round and 8-1 in the second before suffering an 8-6 defeat in the third round.
