Northwestern’s trip to Columbus, Ohio, for the ITA Midwest Regional Championships ended with one singles player and two doubles pairings losing in the third round Saturday.

Sophomore Mihir Kumar was the Wildcats’ most successful player at the event, winning in three sets on Friday and Saturday before falling to the tournament’s fourth-seeded player in the round of 16. In all, four of NU’s six players advanced past the first round.

On the doubles side, NU had two duos reach round three. After three pairs won their first match of the tournament, freshman Strong Kirchheimer and junior Alberto Zanotti as well as Kumar and freshman Sam Shropshire won another before bowing out later in the day.
