Tulsa, OK - Georgia Tech All-American Guillermo Gomez failed to get past the round of 16 at the D’Novo/ITA All-American Tennis Championships, falling in three sets Friday morning to Drew Courtney of Virginia.

The senior from Alicante, Spain, seeded fourth in this event and ranked fourth in the country, lost 6-2, 2-6, 6-4, to the 27th-ranked player in the nation. It was Gomez’s first loss of the fall after eight straight victories. He is 93-31 for his career.

Gomez was the last Georgia Tech player alive in the first national championship event of the year. Sophomore Juan Spir, after winning six matches in the pre-qualifying and qualifying rounds of the tournament, lost in the first round of singles, and also lost in the first round of doubles with Kevin King.

Tech returns to action Oct. 21 in a USTA/ITA Regional event in Gainesville, Fla.
