In doubles action this morning, junior Niclas Genovese and sophomore Dane Dunlap fell to Jake Bhangdia of Furman and Sunay Bhat of Tennessee, 8-5, in the Northwest consolation finals.

Junior classmates Nile Clark and Kevin Bondar were scheduled to face Tennessee’s Srdjan Jakovljevic and Luca Wiedenmann in the finals of the West Division III consolation bracket, although, due to injury, the match never began and the two Hurricanes recorded a walkover victory.

Also in singles play, both Clark and Genovese returned to the courts for their respected finals draws.
