Casey, Davidson Fall in ITA National Quarterfinals

Midwestern State juniors Kayla Casey and Kyle Davidson both fell in the quarterfinals of the USTA/ITA Small College National Championships on Thursday at the Palmetto Tennis Center.

Casey, the junior from Franklin, Texas, fell to second-seeded Dallas Zhang of BYU-Hawaii 6-2, 6-1 in women's singles competition.

Davidson, a junior from Garland, Texas/Naaman Forest, lost to Fabian Groetsch of Barry (Fla.) 6-3, 6-1 on the men's side.

"Kayla completed well," said MSU Coach Scott Linn. "She played one of Division II's top players who was just a bit better."

"Kyle pressed, and didn't play his best tennis. Too many unforced errors."

Both will continue play in the consolation bracket on Friday.

Casey will meet third seeded Christina Zentai of Southwest Baptist (Mo.) at 9:30 Central time on Friday morning. Zentai was upset by Stephanie Hirsch of Indianapolis (Ind.) 6-4, 6-3 in quarterfinal play.

Casey beat Zentai 6-2, 0-2, retired in their only match against each other when MSU beat Southwest Baptist 6-3 on April 6, 2013.

Davidson will take on Benedikt Eger of Azuza Pacific (Calif.) on Friday morning at 7:30. Eger fell to third seeded Fernando Bogajo of Armstrong Atlantic (Ga.) 6-3, 6-1.

"We just need to get ready for tomorrow," Linn added. "This is a great learning experience for both of them."
