2nd Day of Denver Invitational: Lobos Capture Five Singles Matches over Host School

Sept. 22, 2012

DENVER, COLO. – The second day of the Denver Invitational is in the books. The Lobos only played singles against the host school winning five out of seven matches. The tournament does not use team scoring. Rather, each player will be assigned points per win according to their position in singles and doubles. The overall winner will be the player with the most points at the end of the weekend. For example, a singles win is worth eight points at No. 1 down through one point at No. 8, and a doubles win is worth 4 points at #1 down through 1 point at #4.
