SAN ANTONIO — Six members of the UTSA men's tennis team competed at a pair of tournaments last weekend. The Roadrunners sent a contingent of four players to the Lamar Cardinals Classic in Beaumont, while senior Martin Ayala and freshman Diogo Alves Casa wrapped up play at the 2012 ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., last Thursday.

Ayala and Casa advanced to the main draw of doubles competition before falling in the Round of 32 to Tennessee's Jarryd Chaplin and Mikelis Liebietis, who are the 17th-ranked duo in the nation. Ayala and Casa forced the contest to a tiebreaker before the Volunteers' pair ended the match with a 9-8 (7-3) victory.

Meanwhile, junior Kolby Kilgo led the Birds at the Lamar Cardinals Classic after he picked up a 6-4, 7-5 win against Texas-Pan American's Victor Alves in singles play.

UTSA will continue its fall campaign on Saturday, Oct. 20, at the ITA Texas Regional Championships in Fort Worth.
