The opening day of the 2022 ITA Division I Men’s National Team Indoor Championship had a little bit of everything.
A lively crowd on hand to watch host Washington take on No. 1-seed Ohio State. A pair of upsets and plenty of high-level competition.
Texas, the No. 13 seed, scored the biggest upset of the day. The Longhorns avenged a loss from earlier in the dual match season to take down defending NCAA Champion and fourth-seeded Florida 4-3. Texas takes on in-state foe and No. 5 seed TCU in the quarterfinals.
South Carolina rallied from 3-1 down to defeat No. 6 Stanford 4-3. The No. 11 Gamecocks are set to face No. 3 seed Tennessee in the quarters.
The host Huskies, playing to a packed house at the Nordstrom Tennis Center, took the doubles point against the Buckeyes. Washington’s Jack Davis and Brandon Wong handed the No. 1-ranked Ohio State duo of Matej Vocel and Robert Cash their first loss of the 2021-22 season. The Buckeyes rallied in singles to claim a 4-1 victory, and will meet No. 9 Wake Forest in the quarterfinals.
