Dara Kashani fought hard for the Violet and Gold in the No. 3 spot. He won the first set 6-4, but lost the second and third sets 4-6 and 8-10, respectively.
Florent Auteil had his chances as well. He won the first set 6-4. He got shut out in the second set 0-6 and fell 4-6 in the third set and lost the match. The other Kingsmen lost in straight sets.
The Kinsgmen have a few days off before they're back in action. CLU hosts Bates Saturday at 10:00 a.m. in the Poulson Tennis Center.
