TULSA, Okla. - Senior Ricky Doverspike and junior Jarryd Botha dropped an 8-5 decision to Maryland senior Maros Horny and junior John Collins in the opening round of the doubles main draw at the 2011 ITA All-American Championships.
"Jarryd and Ricky started off great getting up 2-0," said Alabama assistant coach Bo Hodge. "They had points to go up 3-0, but just let the Maryland team back in the match. They took their foot off the gas a little, and it ended up costing them the win."
With the loss, Doverspike and Botha move on to the consolation doubles draw, which begins Friday.
