Ingrid Neel provided the deciding point at No. 3 singles, rallying for a 5-7, 6-3, 6-2 win over Taylor Davidson. "While she didn't play her best today, that doesn't take away from how much she's grown this year".

Hagar fell behind 2-0 to start the third, but won the next two to tie it before the match was delayed by lightning for 50 minutes.

No. 56 Nathan Ponwith was next for the Bulldogs, tying the match at 2-2 with a 7-6 (4), 6-2 two set win against No. 22 Ronnie Schneider at court one. After giving up the first point in the fifth game of the set, Markesini rattled off four straight points for the victory.

Markesini's season comes to an end with an overall record of 13-6 in singles play. Furman and Stachowiak earned the highest-ranked doubles win of their careers versus No. 19 Eddy Covalschi and Josh Hagar of Notre Dame with 6-2 victory as Duke went on to upset the Fighting Irish 4-3.

After falling behind 3-0 to begin the match, the 51st-ranked Hagar won the next two games to return the set to serve, eventually tying it at 3-all and 4-all.

Shankle advances to face Kana Daniel of Pennsylvania in the second round of the NCAA Championship on Thursday.

Boyden won the clinching match in three sets against Georgia's Robert Loeb on Monday and he also provided the clincher on Saturday in a three-set victory over Wake Forest's Alan Gadjiev.

A second-team All-SEC honoree and the program's 15th all-time NCAA singles championship selection, Hudson is ranked No. 45 nationally in singles and No. 40 in doubles with partner Giulia Pairone. A No. 5-8 national seed in the 32-team field, Texas A&M's first-ever All-American doubles team will open against Astrid Gehre and Anna Wichert of Texas-Arlington at a time to be determined.

The time for Thursday's match will be announced later this evening. "I know that we will bounce back tomorrow and bring a lot of fire and energy in the doubles. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do this year".

Soendergaard, at the #4 spot, continued to struggle with the bright lights of the NCAA Championship.
