ETSU freshman Jorge Varon (Valencia, Venezuela) won the gold flight singles championship to lead the Bucs at the UVA Fall Invitational on Sunday afternoon.
Varon, who was making his first appearance in a collegiate tournament, defeated Camill Salomon of VCU, 6-6, 6-4 in the finals to earn the title. Varon won four straight matches on the weekend to gain the championship.
Also playing in his first career collegiate tournament, freshman Roger Ordeig (Gurb, Spain) advanced to the consolation match finals in the red flight bracket. He eventually fell to M. Haskin of Cornell, 6-2, 6-3.
