SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington junior Alex Vlaski, along with freshmen Alex Slovic and Daniel Chu, have been selected to compete in the singles and doubles portion of the NCAA Championships, May 26-31, in Tulsa, Okla.
Vlaski, a 2003 All-American, was selected as a 9-16 seed for the 64-player singles bracket and will also team with Chu as a doubles pair in the 32-team bracket. Slovic will join Vlaski in the singles competition. The singles and doubles competition will be conducted following the conclusion of the team championship, May 22-25.

Slovic and Chu will also be making their first NCAA appearances in Tulsa.
As a team, Washington will make its 10-straight trip to the NCAA Championships and will face New Mexico in the first round, Saturday, May 15, at 9 a.m. at Stanford. Should they advance, the Huskies would face the winner of Pacific vs. Stanford, May 16, at noon, for the right to advance to the 16-team finals.
