USC's Torres Falls To UCLA's Clemens In ITA Regional Singles Championship

Oct. 26, 2003

MALIBU, Calif. - USC senior Ruben Torres fell to UCLA's top-seeded Tobias Clemens in straight sets (6-3, 6-2) on Sunday afternoon at the ITA Men's Tennis West Regional Championship played on the Pepperdine campus.

With the victory, Clemens earned the automatic bid to the ITA National Intercollegiate Championships in November, but declined the invitation. So despite the loss, Torres will advance in his place.

In the consolation singles final, San Diego's Jason Pongsrikul defeated UCLA's Chris Lam, 6-2, 2-6, 10-6.

Both final matches were moved to the Malibu campus due to poor air quality at the Home Depot Center as a result of the fires in the Southern California area. Even with clear skies, the matches were played in hot and windy consitions due to the local Santa Ana winds.

Following are USC's tournament results.
