The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs tennis team was eliminated in the opening round of the NCAA Division II North Central Region Tournament on Friday in St. Cloud, Minn.

The Mountain Lions played well but lost to No. 1 seed at tournament host St. Cloud State 5-2.

The Huskies, who are making their fifth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance, grabbed an early lead in the match with wins at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles. Perhaps the best match of the day took place at No. 2 where Jason Shultz and Travis Sellentin lost a narrow 9-7 decision to Jeff Horner and Titus Christianson

The Mountain Lions gained their lone win in doubles play at third doubles as Eric Rivera and Jason Bisanti posted an 8-3 win over Dan Boulay and Michael Engdahl of SCSU.

Schultz was the only UCCS player to win in singles. He won 6-4, 6-4 SCSU's Travis Marohl at No. 4 singles.
