In flight “B” singles, Brian Martin topped McMurry’s Chris Causer 8-1 in the opening round. Martin followed with a 6-4, 6-2 victory over LeTourneau’s Rodrigo Vasquez-Chairez. Jace Mahan topped Texas Lutheran’s Alex Talley 8-2 in the opening round. Mahan then fell to Concordia’s Cameron LaRue 7-5, 7-5. Cole Weiss fell to Concordia’s Adam Compton 8-3. Robert Galligan lost his opener to Trinity’s Ricky Mayer 8-4.

In flight “C” singles, John Swords fell to Southwestern’s Kyle Brown 8-1 in first round action.

In flight “A” doubles, Martin and Galligan fell to Concordia’s Le and LaRue 8-1 in the first round. Dunmore and Mackellar posted an 8-3 first round win over TLU’s Subealda and Dramiga.

In flight “B” doubles, Weiss and Mahan lost to Schreiner’s Isaac Vasquez and Roger Santos 8-4 in the opening round.
