CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (September 30, 2006) - Lisandro Picardo (Mar del Plata, Argentina) and Felix Insaurralde (Asuncion, Paraguay) claimed the Flight A doubles title Sunday at the UNC Invitational.

In singles action, Picardo defeated North Carolina's Chris Kearney, 6-3, 7-6 to garner a third place finish in Flight A-1 singles.

 

Freshman Daniel Isaza (Medellin, Colombia) cruised to an easy victory in Flight B-2 consolation, defeating Michael Sommer of Richmond, 6-2, 6-0, while Insaurralde fell to Ionut Hurdoc of South Carolina State, 6-1, 6-4 in Flight A-2 consolation.
