Thomas Tenreiro regrouped after an opening day loss on Friday by sweeping a pair of singles matches in straight sets on Saturday to advance to the consolation semifinals at the BBC. Tenreiro recorded two sweeps in singles defeating UC Davis’ Adam Levie 7-6, 6-3, then followed that with a easy 6-1, 6-2 victory over Alex Hamilton from Pacific in the quarterfinal round. The junior from Miami, Fla., will face Greg Bayane from California Sunday morning for chance to advance to the consolation championship match.

Unfortunately, the Broncos came up short in the semifinals falling 8-5 to Southern Cal’s Nick Crystal and Connor Farren. Patton and McClain will face UCLA’s tandem of Joseph Di Giulio and Austin Rapp in a consolation match Sunday morning.
