IRVINE, Calif. - Lobo senior Johnny Parkes defeated Thomas Kromann at the USTA Futures in California on Monday, advancing to the main draw.
Parkes won the three-set match, 6-7, 7-5, 6-3.
Parkes, who went an overall 21-11 for the Lobos last season, can now notch ATP points with any wins he collects.
The event is designed to give current college tennis players a taste of competing at the professional level by playing against former college and current pro players.
Parkes will join six other Lobos for the ITA All-American in Tulsa, Okla., starting on Oct. 3.
