LAS VEGAS - UNLV senior Thomas Schneiter upset 90th-ranked Sam Warburg of Stanford 6-3, 6-1 to highlight the host Rebels' first day at the 2002 National Collegiate Tennis Classic Friday.

Playing the men's bracket at Red Rock Country Club, UNLV players went 2-6 in singles on the day with only Schneiter moving on to Saturday's quarterfinals, where he will take on 13th-ranked Marcin Matkowski of UCLA. The Rebels also dropped all three of their doubles matches.

On the women's side, which was played at Fertitta Tennis Complex, three Lady Rebels won their first matches before falling in the second round. No. 59 Paulina Janus swept Breanna Kray of Tennessee 7-6, 6-1 before falling to No. 11 Gabriela Lastra of Stanford 6-2, 3-6, 6-2. Tracie Chong outlasted Lindsey Green of Notre Dame, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, before being defeated by No. 4-ranked Laura Kalavaria of Stanford, 6-3, 6-0. Gyorgi Zsiros cruised past Ashley Robards of Tennessee 6-0, 6-1 before losing to No. 10 Erin Burdette of Stanford 6-3, 6-2, and giving the No. 1 Stanford three of four Saturday semifinalists.

In an abbreviated doubles bracket, Janus and Aga Abram advanced to the semifinals with an 8-2 win over a team made up of Chong of UNLV and Robards of Tennessee.

With all action now set at Fertitta, the men's quarterfinal singles play will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday with doubles to follow while the women's semifinals will kick off at 10 a.m. Championship matches will take place Sunday.
