Adams falls in ITA Men's All-American Championships


South Carolina's men's tennis team traveled to Tulsa, Oklahoma this past weekend to compete in the ITA All-American Championships.

The Gamecocks failed to qualify for the Championship Tournament, and were represented in the consolation bracket.

Senior Andrew Adams,  ranked No. 25 in the nation, went against Texas A&M's No. 15 Shane Vinsant in the first round.

Previously meeting in the SEC Fall Classic in Gainesville, Florida, Vinsant beat Adams in three straight matches.

Vinsant won the first set 6-4, but Adams did have a service break of 4-3 in the second set. However, Vinsant moved through each play to win the set with a 6-3 win.

Adams then took on Florida's Gordon Watson, defeating the Gators captain 6-4, 6-4.

Adams entered the quarterfinals against No. 33 Roberto Quiroz of Southern California.

Quiroz won the first set 6-3, but Adams pulled through winning the second set.

Quiroz defeated Adams in the last set, eliminating the South Carolina senior.

The Gamecocks will compete next in the ITA Carolina Regional in Cary, North Carolina from October 16 to 20.
