FORT WORTH — UTSA closed out competition at the ITA Regional Championships on Sunday at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center.

The Roadrunners collected three victories, including two in singles competition.

Senior Martin Ayala and freshman Diogo Alves Casa continued their strong fall by posting an 8-3 victory against Lamar's Carl-Philip Lindqvist and Mikko Rajamaki in the doubles round of 32. However, the duo lost its following match and were eliminated from the tournament.

Meanwhile, Casa tallied a pair of wins in singles play, including a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Texas' Alex Hillard in the consolation quarterfinals.

UTSA will conclude its fall campaign in two weeks at the Texas Fall Invitational in Austin. The three-day tournament begins on Friday, Nov. 2.
