TULSA, Okla. – Three different Roadrunners competed in the ITA Men's All-American Championships this past weekend in Tulsa, Okla.
Sebastian Rodriguez and Alan Magadan began competition on Saturday, Oct. 1, as a part of the prequalifying action. The two would need to place in the top 16 of prequalifying to participate in the qualifying round. Tiago Torres began play on Monday, Oct. 3, thanks to his preseason ranking which allowed him to begin at the qualification round. Rodriguez and Magadan also competed as a team in the doubles draw on Monday.
