ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech men’s tennis team was unable to put together a winning record on Saturday and was eliminated from the South Carolina Fall Classic in Columbia, S.C. The tournament is being played at five different sites on the University of South Carolina campus.
Yellow Jacket junior Fabio Campos opened the day for Tech in singles play in the A-1 consolation draw. Campos advanced to the third round of the draw as he downed Milos Lazic of Charleston in the second round in a three-set match. Campos dropped the first set by a 0-6 score, but was able to rally in the next two sets, claiming a pair of 6-2 decisions. In the next round however, Campost was unable to advance to the draw semifinals as he fell to Jacob Nordwall of Charlotte by a 1-6, 5-7 score.
Tech closed out the day in doubles competition, as Campos and teammate Alex Navinkov were unable to stay alive in the A-1 Doubles Draw, dropping an 8-5 decision to Geoff Boyd and Nicholas Monroe of North Carolina.
