TULSA, Okla. - The ITA All-American Championships, the first major individual tournament of the season, began Saturday with pre-qualifying action at the Case Tennis Center on the campus of the University of Tulsa. Virginia had three players in the draw, with one advancing to the second round.

First year J.C. Aragone (Yorba Linda, Calif.) won his first round match, while sophomore Jonathan Cornish (London, England.) dropped his opener. First-year Jordan Daigle's (Lafayette, La.) first round match was delayed by rain.
