Overbeck Makes Consolation Final At ITA Regionals
MORAGA, Calif. – Cal men's tennis freshman Carl Emil Overbeck won twice Saturday in the consolation singles draw to reach Sunday's final in the ITA Northwest Regional Championships. But Cal senior Philip Hjorth, playing in the singles main draw, fell in the quarterfinals.
Hjorth, the top seed, lost to fifth-seeded James Watt of Saint Mary's, 7-6(5), 2-6, 7-5, in a tight contest.
In the singles back draw, Overbeck advanced in a walkover past Nevada's Daniel Dudockin in the quarterfinals. The first-year Golden Bear then beat Felipe Rincon of Saint Mary's in the semifinals, 6-2, 6-2, to reach the final.
The consolation final could have featured two Bears. Cal sophomore Lucas Magnaudet won his quarterfinal against Karlo Divkovic of Saint Mary's, 6-4, 3-6, 10-6. But he lost to Santa Clara's Ryan Ali in the close semifinal match, 7-5, 4-6, 10-6.
Overbeck will play Ali in the final at 11 a.m. on Sunday on the final day of the ITA Northwest Regional Championships.
