LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Garrett Patton swept two matches on Thursday to reach the USTA/ITA Mountain Region quarterfinals in Las Vegas. In addition, both Boise State doubles teams, Patton and Brendan McClain, as well as Brian Foley and Toby Mitchell won matches to advance to Friday’s round of 16.

Patton opened the morning with a three-set victory over Utah State’s Sebastian Schneider by 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 scores. Then in the afternoon Patton defeated New Mexico’s Bart Van Leijsen in two sets 6-4, 7-6 (1) in the round of 16. The Boise State senior now advances to Friday’s quarterfinals where he will play Denver’s Alex Gasson at 12:30 p.m. (Mountain).

Unfortunately, two other Broncos failed to advance beyond the round of 16 in Thomas Tenreiro and Brendan McClain. Both players won their first match of the day then lost the second.

Tenreiro opened by defeating New Mexico’s Roldolfo Jauregui 6-1, 6-1 in the round of 32. He then lost to Utah’s Cedric Willems 7-5, 6-2 in the next round.

McClain started his day with an easy 6-1, 6-1 victory over BYU’s Shane Monroe. He then lost in the second contest during the round of 16 to New Mexico’s Sam Iftikhar in three sets 5-7, 7-6(4), 6-1.  
Toby Mitchell was the fourth Bronco to advance to today’s round of 32, but fell in two sets 7-6 (6), 7-5 to Jacob Sullivan of BYU. Brian Foley and Danny Moyer both lost consolation draw matches this afternoon as well.

Boise State remains alive in doubles with both pairs reaching Friday’s round of 16. Patton and McClain won 8-4 this morning over Northern Arizona’s Jordan Gobatie and Alex Locci. They will face a tandem from Northern Colorado, Ben Gendron and Austin Mayo, at 10 a.m. on Friday.
