TAMPA - Oliver Pramming got in a lot of tennis at the USTA/ITA Southeast Regional.

Pramming advanced past the consolation draw's round of 16 by defeating Stetson's Cahit Kapukiran, 6-3, 7-6 (2), on Saturday in Tallahassee. Pramming started Sunday off with a three-set win over FAU's Jose Fantova before finishing up in the semifinals.

Other Bulls to make it to the consolation draw's round of 16 were Everth Dzib and Federico Sabogal.

First-year head coach Matt Hill has been pleased with USF's effort during a fall semester that has brought a lot of changes to the program.

"Even though we aren't winning every match, we are seeing the guys work on their games in the direction we want them to go," Hill said. "While that isn't showing up in all the scores, it's great to see for us coaches regarding where we are going to be in the future."
