quarterfinal, while Adam Carey and Mark Fitzpatrick advanced to the third

round. Parsons was the lone Vol to advance past the quarterfinal, but was

defeated by No. 2 seed Justin O'Neal of Florida in the semifinal


The tournament was the Vols last of the fall season. Tennessee will resume

tennis action again on Jan. 4-9 at the Milwaukee Invitational.
