Peter Palandjian and Arkie Engle, the Crimson's two entrants in the NCAA Tennis Tournament, were eliminated in first-round action earlier this week.

Playing in singles competition, Palandjian was defeated by California-Irvine's Mark Kaplan, 7-5, 7-5 on Tuesday. The senior was Harvard's top-ranked singles player.

Palandjian, a senior and Eliot House resident, teamed with Engle on Wednesday for opening-round doubles action, in which Charles Beckman and Royce Deppe of the University of Texas downed the Crimson duo, 7-6, 7-5, 3-6, 6-2.
