TULSA- The first day of the All-American Championships pre-qualifying rounds saw Pat Metham and Ravid Hazi see action. In his first match of the day, Metham battled Collin Hoover of Texas A & M. Hoover defeated Metham 6-2,6-4. The early loss means Metham's run in the All-American Championship ended.
"The All-American Championships has some of the elite college players," head coach Tad Berkowitz said. "The important thing is that Pat gained some valuable experience."
Ravid won his only match of the day by defeating Lucas Tirelli of St. Mary's who withdrew from the tournament.
"Ravid won only match of the day," Berkowitz said. "He needs some rest because hopefully he will play two matches tomorrow."
Ravid will play Will Beck of Kentucky tomorrow 8:00 a.m. Tucson time.
