LAFAYETTE, La. - Tobias Scheil notched a pair of straight-set victories and advanced to the A Flight singles semifinals Saturday at the Ramada Inn-LCVC ULL Fall Invitational.
Scheil took down Nicholls State's Eric Fischer 6-3, 6-1 before dismissing LSU's Jonathan Tragardh by the count of 6-4, 6-3.
Down a set and a break, Dennis Polyakov rallied to turn the tables on ULL's Piotr Olechowski. The Houston native won 12 of the last 13 games for the 5-7, 6-3, 6-1 triumph. Polyakov's bid for the semifinals fell short as Memphis' Jorge Vasquez picked up a 6-1, 6-2 win.
In the B singles flight, Vishnu Rajam knocked off LSU's David Roberts 6-4, 6-3. Rajam's quarterfinal match against Oscar Machuca of Southern Miss was paused at 6-7 (2), 6-4, 2-2 due to rain.
Singles action continues Sunday, while doubles play has been cancelled.
