After the first day of singles play at the ITA Ohio Valley Regional, all four Governors in action found themselves in the Singles Consolation draw.

Anton Damberg advanced the farthest of any of the Govs in the consolation draw, winning both of his first two matches, before advancing to the semifinals thanks to a pair of walkovers. Christian Edison also won a match in the singles consolation draw.

While juniors Edison and Jacob Lorino continued to play together in doubles action last weekend, the Govs also unveiled a new pairing in Nashville. Damberg and freshman Thiago Nogueira teamed up, as Noguiera played in his first doubles action of the season with Julius Gold sidelined.
