Monday, 11/02/2015

WESTWOOD, CALIF. — USC senior Max de Vroome powered up for his first singles title of the season, rolling up a run to the singles championship at the Southern California Intercollegiate Championships in Westwood this weekend. De Vroome upended UCLA’s Karue Sell in a three-setter in the title match today to claim the crown. USC also had a pair in the doubles final, where Trojans Kalman Boyd and David Laser saw their winning rally that started in qualifying play come to a close with a 6-3, 6-3 loss to a duo from UC Santa Barbara in today’s title match. 
After all eight USC entries in the mix scored wins in the Round of 32, a set of five Trojans won their Round of 16 singles matches in the main draw to get the ball rolling on a USC-dominated event in Westwood. That made for one all-Trojan quarterfinal, where junior Rob Bellamy took out freshman Jack Jaede with a 6-3, 6-3 decision to move on through to the semifinals. Meanwhile, freshman Logan Smith fell in his quarterfinal match, and senior de Vroome stayed on his winning journey in taking out Bruin Austin Rapp. That would set up another all-Trojan bout for Bellamy, who had to face de Vroome in the semis. The elder Trojan made an early move, beating Bellamy 6-0, 6-4 to punch a ticket to the title match. There, de Vroome claimed the first set in a tiebreaker, lost the second and then took control in the third to win it all with a 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 decision and claim the championship. 
In doubles, Kalman Boyd and David Laser teamed up to great success with above through qualifying and into the main draw. There, Boyd/Laser pulled out a tight Round of 16 win and stayed the course, unfazed by two more close ones as they moved on through to the final on a 3-6, 7-6 (5), 1-0 (10-7) battle won against teammates Bellamy and Jake DeVine in the semifinals. In the final, Boyd/Laser came up against UC Santa Barbara’s Eshmade/Seeman, who were ready for the Trojans in posting a 6-3, 6-3 decision in the title match. USC had also seen Trojans Connor Farren and Tanner Smith score a semifinal slot, having upset the No. 3 seeds from UCLA in the Round of 16 before solidly beating a set of Gauchos in the quarterfinals. In the semis, Farren/Smith fell to the future champs from UCSB.
