Vasin Reaches Finals of Virginia Invitational

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Junior Alex Vasin advanced to the finals of his bracket of the Virginia Invitational Saturday with a win over Carlos Salmon of Wake Forest, 6-3, 6-4. Vasin will face Marwan Ramadan of William & Mary later today.

Vasin and senior Brandon O'Gara also claimed victory in doubles play, defeating a pair from Longwood, 9-7.

"I was very happy with the progress of Vasin and O'Gara," said head coach Nik DeVore. "They were a bit inconsistent at times, but their intensity was good and they left everything on the court."

"I am using this time to get a feel for the competitors that we have on the team," said DeVore, who is making his debut as Penn's head coach. "Thus far, I have been pleased with the overall effort."
