Hyon Yoo opened with a 7-6 (1), 6-3 triumph over Furman's Drew Parker in Flight A. Yoo will face Georgia Southern's Kerry Russell Saturday at noon.
Freshman Huntley Montgomery received a first round bye and will face Sam Schroelucke of Furman also at noon.
John Winter fell to Olaf Akesson of South Carolina 6-2, 6-3 today a Flight A match. Winter falls into the consolation bracket tomorrow.
Andy Nessen won two matches in the B Flight today to set up a meeting against Lance Mills of Virginia Tech Saturday at 2 PM. Nessen began with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Caku Yukawa of UNC-Greensboro. He then defeated Hampton's Rodrigo Soares 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the second round.
