"Lovro and Gary played well all weekend," head coach Michael Engdahl said. "Anytime you can win flights in these tournaments, it is big. It was great to see their Jackrabbit debuts end with first-place finishes.

Curcija, a transfer from the University of New Orleans, defeated North Dakota's Will Biemat 6-3, 6-1 to win flight D. Notkin, who came to SDSU by way of Wisconsin-Green Bay, defeated Northern Colorado's Jordan Laughnan 6-1, 6-2 to win flight F.

"It was a great week to figure out what we need to work on moving forward," Engdahl said. "We figured out a lot of things and I know that everyone is ready to work this week to get ready for our tournament this weekend."

SDSU will host the Jackrabbit Invite this weekend, with action kicking off Friday afternoon.
