Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) and Alex Domijan (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) highlighted the strong day for the Cavaliers as each advanced in both singles and doubles during Thursday's play at the Case Tennis Center.
Styslinger, who reached the singles main draw with three wins in qualifying, won his first round match 6-4, 6-3 over Dymtro Mamedov of Utah.
