Iglesias won his first match of the day in three sets, 6-0, 3-6, 7-6(10), over Niklas Oskarrsson of Old Dominion before being defeated by Virginia's Mike Duquette 6-1, 7-5. Serrano fell victim to Clemson's John Boetsch 6-2, 4-6, 6-4. The tournament's qualifying rounds, held Wednesday, Oct. 23 and Thursday, Oct. 24, feed into a main draw where the singles finalists and doubles champions earn a spot in the Nov. 7-10 Omni Hotels National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships at Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, Texas.
