Men’s Tennis Plays with Tough Field in Rebel Classic Opening Day

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – After all-four Northern Arizona players lost their initial singles matches, the Lumberjacks rebounded with a pair of consolation victories on the first day of action at the Rebel Classic in Las Vegas. Joining NAU and host UNLV in the weekend tournament are players from Arkansas, Arizona, Cal Poly, Idaho, Pacific and NAIA member Fresno Pacific. The tournament is limited to a maximum of four players from each participating team.

Victorious in Flight One for Northern Arizona was junior David Flodberg. After dropping an opening round decision to Pacific’s Artem Gramma, Flodberg cruised to a 6-0, 6-1 win over Fresno Pacific’s Maxine Adam. NAU freshman Hugo Ramadier also took a loss in his first-round match in Flight Two, but bounced back with a 6-1, 6-1 consolation victory over James Harris of Fresno Pacific.

In doubles play, Flodberg and freshman Patrick Schimmelbauer battled in an 8-6 defeat to Drew Jacobs and Brian McPhee of Cal Poly. Ramadier and sophomore Josh Brown also fell by the same margin in their first-round doubles match.
