OJAI, Calif. - The Aggie doubles tandem of Jayce Fitch and Ross Barasch advanced as far as the semifinals after splitting their two matches on Saturday afternoon at the 2004 Ojai Valley Tennis Championships.

Fitch and Barasch began their day with a come-from-behind, 6-7, 6-1, 6-3 win over the Westmont duo of Chris Mark and Bryn Mercado. That win pushed the Aggies into the semifinals where they faced the No.2-seed's David Goodman and Gordon Hung of Azusa Pacific. In that match, Goodman and Hung won two close sets, escaping with a 6-3, 6-4 win.

Play concludes at the Ojai Championships on Sunday.
