Rouanet Flight 1 runner-up at NJCAA championships: Buchanan claims Flight 6 singles consolation crown

PLANO, Texas – Vincennes University freshman Nicolas “Nico” Rouanet came up short this morning in the Flight 1 championship match of the NJCAA Men’s National Tennis Championship, but the 6-1, 6-4 victory by ASA’s Callum Polland-Smith wrapped up an incredible season for Rouanet.

Another VU highlight came in the Consolation Bracket of the Flight 6 singles, Trailblazer Brennan Buchanan beat Lewis & Clark’s Connor Melton, 8-2.

Complete final point totals for the tournament haven’t been posted yet but, according to  the event officials, the top three finishers in team standings are:
ASA                50 points,

Tyler               43 points, and,
ABAC             33 points.

Full point totals were to be posted later today. The Trailblazers’ team finish in the tournament will be posted then. VU was seventh at the end of play on Thursday.

Rouanet’s route this week through the championship tournament’s bracket was impressive as he defeated the players he was expected to beat and pulled a seeding upset of No. 2 seed and defending Flight 1 national champion Joshua Page of ABAC in the semifinals.

Also this morning, Ciro Lampasas of Tyler upended Ismael Mzai of Seminole, 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 to win Flight 2 singles, Stephen Watson of ASA defeated Tyler’s Jonah Candelario, 6-1, 6-4 to win the Flight 3 singles title and Zachary Northey of Tyler turned away Rasheed Carey of ASA, 7-6 (7-5), 0-6, 6-4 to claim the Flight 4 singles crown.
