AUSTIN, Texas -
Lamar's Dusan Savkovic advanced to the second round of the Texas Invitational men's tennis tournament before bowing out on Saturday.
Savkovic was a 6-1, 4-6, 7-6 (5) winner over Kolby Kilgo of UTSA in the first round of the B draw. Savkovic then dropped a 6-2, 6-1 decision to Daniel Brown of Texas A&M.
Carlos Valdenebro won one match in the consolation round, posting a 6-2, 6-3 win over Oliver Breininger of UTSA.
The tournament marked the end of the fall season for Lamar.
"I have definitely seen some improvement," first-year coach Scott Shankles said. "We just have to learn to put the hammer down and finish matches. But I'm very encouraged by what I saw this fall."
The spring season begins in January.
