LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Junior Patrick Schimmelbauer advanced to the fourth round of the consolation round, but his road at the ITA Mountain Regional Championships came to end on Day 3 when he fell to Arizona's Mario Urquidi, 7-5, 6-3. Earlier in the morning, Schimmelbauer knocked off Alex Grubbs of Air Force, 6-2, 6-2. He finished the tournament at 3-2 in singles play, more than the other three Lumberjacks at the tournament combined.
Schimmelbauer, along with sophomore Dominic Bermudez, was also bounced from the consolation draw in doubles play, as they fell to the Utah State duo of Marcus Fritz and Fredrik Peterson.
