Oct. 20, 2011
LAS VEGAS - After a successful first day of competition on Wednesday, the Aggies had a hard time advancing Thursday in the singles round as they took on many seeded players.
Sophomore Fredrik Peterson lost to Jadon Phillips, the No. 4-seed from the University of New Mexico, (6-0, 6-1). Freshman Andrew Whiting lost in two sets to No. 17-seed Dmytro Mamedov of the University of Utah, (6-2, 6-0).
Going into Thursday's competition, the duo of Peterson and freshman Marcus Fritz was the only doubles team left standing. They lost a close match to Marius Cirstea and Andrew Dobbs from the University of Idaho, (9-7).
The Aggies will stay at the tournament to continue playing in the consolation round that continues Friday. Andrew Whiting, Sweet, Poslusny and freshman Curran Wearmouth are still alive in the singles bracket and the Whiting brothers will also play in the doubles round.
