Sophomores Andres Carrasco and Jay Goldman, and freshman Jason Zafiros are scheduled to compete in the main draw on Saturday.

    “”This is a good opportunity for our guys to play some of the top college players in the country,”” said UA head coach Tad Berkowitz in a press release. “”All fall we have stressed the importance of gaining college experience and the All-American Championships is no better place to achieve that.””
