Fadul won the first set in the No. 5 match against Nicolas deQuesada 6-2, but deQuesada rallied to win the next two sets 6-3, 10-3.

In doubles, Fuca teamed up with classmate Dylan Granat (Woodbury, N.Y./Syosset) in the No. 1 match and sophomores Connor Aulson (Groveland, Mass./Pentucket) and Daniel Weitz (Roslyn, N.Y./Roslyn) teamed up in the No. 2 match.
