Oct. 17, 2004

Tennessee men's tennis players Ockie Oosthuizen and Ben Rogers lost Sunday at the Racquet Club of Memphis to end their stay in the ITA Regional Indoor Championships

The Vols duo opened the draw with two victories on Saturday but could not find a victory on Sunday. In the quarterfinals, Oosthuizen and Rogers lost to LSU's Danny Bryan and Jason Hazley 8-6. The UT sophomores are now 11-2 in the fall season, with seven victories over ranked teams. Both losses have occurred to SEC opponents. The highlight of the fall so far for Oosthuizen and Rogers is winning their first nine matches of the season and capturing the title at the Southern Intercollegiate Championships. Oosthuizen and Rogers were not ranked in the preseason.

UT returns to action when the Big Orange host the UT Fall Classic, which runs Oct. 29 -31.
