UCSB's Moreno de Alboran Upends NCSU's Galarneau To Advance To Second Round of NCAA Singles Championships

The first round of the NCAA Singles Championships saw UC Santa Barbara's own No. 67 ranked Nicolas Moreno de Alboran face No. 43 Alexis Galarneau of North Carolina State. The junior Gaucho knew today's opening match would be a tough one, but when all was said and done Moreno de Alboran came out the victor defeating Galarneau 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.

With the win, Moreno de Alboran became the first UCSB athlete to win an NCAA Singles Tournament match since 1995 when Santa Barbara's Alex Decret defeated Gus Fernandez of LSU, 6-4, 7-5.
