Perez Peña played the opening round match against Michigan State’s No. 25 Ozan Baris, the No. 5-8 seed in the field, falling by a 6-1, 6-4 score. The junior moves to 11-3 on the season with the loss as his seven-match win steak comes to an end. 

The Castellon de la Plana, Spain native now moves into the singles consolation draw. He will play the loser of the match between Cornell’s Radu Papoe, the Northeast Super Regional runner-up, and VCU’s Mathis Bondaz, the Atlantic regional runner-up.

His tournament championship marked the sixth time since 2013 a Bulldog has won the Southeast Regional singles title.
