CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Senior Jasmin Hodzic and sophomores Nick Ames and Henry Gers ended competition today in day one of the 2003 Icy Hot/ITA Men's All-American Championships prequalification round in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Hodzic started the day against Georgia Tech's Zachary Rath in the round of 256. Hodzic slid past Rath, 6-4; 7-5 to advance to the round of 128. Rice's Rodrigo Gabriel proved to be to much as he downed Hodzic, 6-4; 6-1.

Gers opened the tournament with a 6-3; 6-3 win over John Hangstefer of Tennessee-Chattanooga in the round of 256. Louisiana-Lafayette's Evgheni Corduneau netted a 6-1; 6-3 win over Gers in the round of 128.

Ames fell in a heartbreaker to Tennessee-Chattanooga's Marian Axente, 5-7; 6-4; 7-6 (1), in the round of 258.
