Razorbacks Back in Action on Day Two of ITA Regionals

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Hog tennis squad notched seven wins with six losses Friday at the ITA Central Regional Championships in Lincoln. All 11 Hogs invited to the championships were back in action Friday for day two of the four-day tournament. 

It was solely singles play Friday, and the Hogs were caught in the position of having four of their six players in the main draw matched up against each other. Aleksa Bucan faced Nico Rousset while Oscar Pinto Sansano took on Adrien Burdet. Bucan had a big day, taking down teammate Rousset and then Tulsa’s Stefan Hampe to reach the quarterfinals. Burdet defeated fellow Hog Pinto Sansano but fell in the round of 16.
