Mustangs fall to Cameron in regional finals

No. 29-ranked Cameron turned the tables on 12th-ranked Midwestern State taking a 5-3 decision to claim the South Central Region No. 1 championship Sunday afternoon at the MSU Tennis Center.
 
The Aggies (16-8) advanced to the NCAA Division II Championships Round of 16 for the second consecutive season and for the fourth time in program history.
 
Cameron takes on the winner of the Atlantic No. 2 regional on Wednesday, May 13 at the Surprise (Ariz.) Racquet and Tennis Club.
 
Midwestern State had its 25-match home court winning streak snapped to close a solid regular season with a 16-6 record.
 
The Mustangs obtained the highest national ranking in program history at No. 12 cruising through the campaign with a perfect 7-0 mark against in-region foes to earn a top seed.
 
Midwestern also sees its run of national quarterfinal appearances ended at two straight. The Mustangs had not lost a Division II match since falling to No. 8-ranked Saint Leo (Fla.) on March 19. MSU's last loss at home came to Oklahoma Christian on March 2, 2013.
 
Midwestern beat the Aggies 6-3 in the regular season finale on April 20 in Lawton, but the results were much different Sunday afternoon.
 
The Aggies claimed a 2-1 edge coming out of doubles play despite MSU firing the first salvo with senior Kacper Boborykin and Kyle Davidson taking an 8-3 win over Dennis Merdan and Joao Fazendeiro at the No. 2 position.
 
Cameron rallied for an 8-6 victory at No. 3 before Felipe Oyarzun and Mateo Velasco combined for an 8-6 win over Tomas Grejtak and Ramon Toyos at the top position.
 
The Aggies quick pushed MSU to the brink by taking the first two singles matches to come off the court. CU's Angelo Lencioni beat Grejtak 6-2, 6-3 at No. 5 before Merdan took down Boborykin in straight sets 7-5, 6-4 at No. 1.
 
Midwestern rallied to within 4-3 as sophomore Chris Norrie beat Cameron's Mateo Velasco 6-4, 6-4 at No. 4 and Davidson defeated Oyarzun 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) at No. 2.
 
Toyos fought through a series of cramping issues, but was unable to hold off Fazendeiro at No. 3 singles allowing the Aggies to clinch with a 7-5, 0-6, 6-2 decision.
 
MSU's Keegan Sullivan split sets with Cameron's Justin Baciu at No. 6 singles claiming a 6-2 result in the first set before falling in a tiebreaker in the second.
 
Boborykin and Grejtak close out great collegiate careers for the Maroon and Gold. Boborykin finishes eighth on MSU's all time list for duals wins with 102, while Grejtak logged 49 career doubles victories.
