Kiril Dimitrov and Reid Carleton each played in the NCAA Singles...

COLLEGE STATION, Texas Ė Duke’s Kiril Dimitrov and Reid Carleton each lost in straight sets in the first round of the NCAA Individual Singles Championships at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center in College Station, Texas.

Dimitrov, ranked No. 56 in the ITA singles rankings, faced the No. 1 player in the country to open the tournament. Tulsa’s Arnua Brugues entered the field of 64 with a 25-match winning streak and would extend it with a straight set win over Dimitrov.

Brugues cruised to a 6-0 win in the first set. He jumped ahead 4-1 in the second set before Dimitrov cut it to 4-2. However, in the end the top seed in the tournament would prevail, winning the final two points for a 6-2 win. Dimitrov ends his college career with 83 career singles wins after leading Duke with a 26-14 record in 2008-09.

Carleton, ranked No. 42, drew No. 12 Nate Schrugg of Georgia in the first round. Schrugg jumped out to an early lead and wound up winning the first set 6-1. The second set was on serve until Schrugg broke Carleton to take a 4-3 lead. He would then hold serve to close out the match with a 6-4 win. A sophomore from Naples, Fla., Carleton ends his sophomore season with a 20-15 overall singles record.
