HANOVER, N.H. - Quinnipiac's James Kwei (Dedham, Mass.) defeated New Jersey Institute of Technology's Calle Lundquist in the opening round of the ITA Northeast Regional Qualifying Thursday at Dartmouth, but fell to Marist's Matt Himmelsbach in the second round. A win against the second-seeded Himmelsbach would've pushed Kwei into tomorrow's main draw.
Kwei got past Lundquist, 6-3, 7-5, in the opening round. But Himmelsbach was too much in the second round, defeating Kwei, 6-2, 6-3.
Kwei's weekend is not over, however, as he'll pair with Brian Mikkelson (Mequon, Wis.) in the doubles main draw, set to begin tomorrow morning. Mikkelson and John Hughes (Springfield, Mass.) are also slated to begin play in the singles main draw tomorrow afternoon. All matches are being played at Dartmouth.
