Release: Saturday 10/09/2010 
SAN DIEGO, Calif - The UC San Diego men's tennis team went 4-1 in doubles on its way to an 11-10 overall record on the second day of the San Diego State Fall Invitational at the Aztec Tennis Center. Over two days of competition, the Tritons are 21-19 and have amassed a 7-2 record in doubles play.

The duo of Erik Elliott and Austin West continue to roll through their competition, defeating a pair of opponents from UC Irvine and UC Riverside, 8-2 and 8-5, respectively. The Elliott-West combo recently won the Intercollegiate Tennis Association West Region doubles title on October 2, earning the duo spot at the ITA Small College National Championships, which will be held next week, Oct. 14-17, at the Copeland-Cox Tennis center in Mobile, Ala.

Devon Sousa and Chapman Chan went 1-1 for the Tritons in doubles while Jake Fellow and Junya Yoshida beat their only opponent, 8-6.

The singles round started rough for the Tritons, as Elliott and Sam Ling combined for a 1-3 record in the A/B Bracket.

In the C/D Bracket, Yoshida lost a three-set heartbreaker to Abdullah Hashem of the University of San Diego, 6-4, 2-6, 10-7 before coming back to outlast his opponent in his last match, 4-6, 6-2, 10-8. Yoshida and Elliott are now 5-1 through two days of play.

In the consolation round of the C/D Bracket, UCSD would go 5-5 with Sousa winning both of his matches while Vincent Nguyen and West each split.

The SDSU Fall Invite is slated to wrap up tomorrow, with both doubles and singles matches taking place at Aztec Tennis Center.
