Complete results from the tournament

DAVIS, Calif. -- All eight Sacramento State men's tennis players participated in the Aggie Invitational, held late last week at the Marya Welch Tennis Center. This tournament marked the first of the fall season for the Hornets.

The event included multiple highlights for Sacramento State, which included senior Christopher Clayton advancing to the quarterfinals of his draw. In fact, Clayton won his first two matches in straight sets over players from Gonzaga and Cal before falling in three sets to Nevada's Peter O'Donovan, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

In addition, senior Kasparas Zemaitelis won his first round match in straight sets over an opponent from San Francisco before retiring in the second round due to illness. Sophomore Hermont Legaspi won his first round match in straight sets before falling in the round of 16 to Nevada's Jonathan Aremon, 6-7 (9), 7-5, 6-4. In addition, newcomer Bernardo Moraes defeated Nikita Demir from Stanford by a 6-2, 2-6, 10-3 score.

In doubles play, the combination of juniors Donald Hall and Dom Miller went 2-1, beating opponents from Gonzaga and Cal. That included a victory over the draw's top seed Dominic and Paul Barretto of Cal by an 8-7 (6) score. Zemaitelis and junior Mikus Losbergs won a match against a team from Santa Clara, and Clayton/Legaspi beat an opponent from Stanford Saint Mary's. Losbergs and Moraes won both of their consolation matches over doubles teams from Gonzaga and Portland.

Sacramento State's results from each of its singles and doubles matches can be found below. All eight players on the Hornets' roster competed in both the singles and doubles draws.

Up next for the Sacramento State is the USTA/ITA Northwest Regionals in Stockton from Oct. 19-23. In all, the Hornets will compete in three fall tournaments, including the Pacific Invitational at the end of this month.

The spring season begins on Jan. 19, when the Hornets travel to Moraga to take on Saint Mary's.
