SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- The University of Nevada earned one victory on Sunday to close out the final day of UCSB Invitational.

Leading the way for the Wolf Pack was Victor Ouvrard, who earned a third place finish over fellow pack member Andrew Poustie in singles Flight A by a score of 6-4, 6-2.

Fernando Sunago notched a second place finish, dropping his singles Flight A Consolation finals match to Ziad Sultan of the University of California, Santa Barbara 6-4, 6-2. Head coach William Burton still felt Sunago has been performing well.

"Fernando has improved a great deal over the summer, and he had a strong showing with two of his losses this weekend to tough players that he took the distance with," he said.

Ryan Andrada defaulted his third place match in singles Flight B to stay fresh for Regionals in Las Vegas next Wednesday.

In doubles action, Ouvrard and Sunago wound up with a second place finish with a 8-4 loss to Sultan and Sasha Gryaznov of Santa Barbara in the doubles Flight B finals.

Philip Hinojosa and Andrada also dropped their doubles Flight B consolation finals match to Kona Luu and Ganesh Alagappan of the University of California, San Diego 8-6.

"Sunago, Ouvrard, Andrada, Hinojosa, and Poustie demonstrated a lot of heart this weekend here in Santa Barbara," Burton said. "We are definitely turning some heads with our results, and hopefully more success will come for Wolf Pack men's tennis next week and then continue into the spring semester."

Wednesday begins the Mountain Regionals, with play starting at 9 A.M.
