MEN’S TENNIS BEGINS FALL SEASON AT THE AGGIE INVITATIONAL

DAVIS, Calif. -- Eight Sacramento State men's tennis players took part in this past weekend's Aggie Invitational. The three-day tournament marked the first of two fall tournaments in which the Hornets will compete.

Juniors Oliver Andersen, Roy Brandys, Sean Kolar, Marek Marksoo and Tom Miller, sophomores Joaquin Marquez and Niranjan Ram, and freshman Ayman Abdulwahab each competed for the Hornets. Five of the seven players who competed in the singles portion of the event picked up at least one victory while Marksoo did not play singles. Brandys had to pull out of both the singles and doubles draws midway through the tournament with a wrist injury.

The Hornets' doubles' teams were comprised of Abdulwahab/Marksoo, Kolar/Miller, Marquez/Brandys, and Ram/Andersen. Ram and Anderson advanced to the main draw's semifinals before falling.

Complete singles and doubles results from each of Sacramento State's players can be found below.

Sacramento State will play its final tournament of the fall in two weeks when the team competes at the ITA Northwest Regionals in Berkeley, Calif.
