Bloom, Carcione Remain in Doubles Play at USTA/ITA Regional
Though Princeton's singles entries in the USTA/ITA Regional at Yale were bounced from the main draw Saturday, Augie Bloom and Jonathan Carcione kept the Tigers going by advancing to the Round of 16 in doubles play.
Zack McCourt and Tom Colautti advanced to the Round of 32 in singles before bowing out. McCourt ran into Winston Lin, ranked No. 54 in the nation, and two of Princeton's three doubles pairs also made it to the Round of 32 before bowing out.
Bloom and Carcione will face Cornell's Jason Luu and Quoc-Daniel Nguyen in the Round of 16 Sunday.
