Two UC Davis doubles tandems are still alive in the main draw while senior Kyle Miller advanced in the singles consolation bracket at the 2013 USTA/ITA Northwest Regionals hosted by Saint Mary's, each moving on to the third round after strong showings on Saturday at the Timothy Korth Tennis Complex in Moraga, Calif.
Sophomore Adam Levie and freshman Alec Adamson are through after opening doubles play with a pair of victories on Saturday, posting an 8-4 win over Fresno State's Adriaan DuToit and Sai Kartik in the first round and an 8-6 win over the Stanford duo of Maciek Romanowicz and Robert Stinemann.
Sophomore Brett Bacharach and freshman James Wade then followed suit, teaming up to defeat Stanford's Anthony Tsodikov and Daniel Ho, 8-3, in the opener and posting an 8-7 (5) win over Pacific's Miguel Diaz and Sem Verbeek in round two.
