NORMAN – Oklahoma men’s tennis wrapped up the ITA Central Region Championships Sunday. Junior Ferran Calvo’s run came to an end in the semifinals, where he was defeated by Stefan Millicevic of Minnesota, 6-3, 6-4.

In the quarterfinals, Calvo bested Oklahoma State’s Tristan Meraut in a thriller, winning 6-7 (4), 7-6 (1), 6-1. The first frame went to the wire with Meraut coming out on top in a tiebreaker. Calvo turned the tables in the second to win the set in another tiebreaker. The Sooner then took control and gave up just one game in the decider to advance to the semifinal round.

Alex Bakshi’s run came to an end in the quarterfinals, where he was defeated by Tulsa’s Kilani, 6-3, 6-4. Sooner doubles tandem of Adrian Oetzbach and Jochen Bertsch were also eliminated in the quarterfinals by Matic Spec and Felix Corwin of Minnesota, 6-3, 6-4.

In the consolation draw, James Davis made quick work of Minnesota’s Marino Alpeza, 6-2, 6-1. Mason Bridegan also grabbed a win, defeating Boriss Kamdem of Tulsa, 6-1, 7-6 (5)
