TULSA, Okla. - Rain was the big winner Saturday at the Saint Francis ITA All-American Championships with first round prequalifying play being delayed, moved indoors and then back outside to wrap it up.   The Rebels will have two players in the second round Sunday, as Zach Wilder won his match in straight sets to join teammate Stefan Lindmark, who had a first round bye.

Originally scheduled to go on at 1:30 p.m., rain delayed the start of Wilder's match until 7:30.  After waiting around all day to play, Wilder took out Old Dominion's Dante Terenzio 6-4, 7-5 to advance to the second round.

Players were supposed to play two rounds on Saturday, but with the rain, the second round will be played Sunday.  Wilder will face Federico Sabogal of South Florida.  Lindmark will meet Michael Sonowski of Oral Roberts in the second round.

Freshman Vinod Gowda was not able to join his teammates in the second round, dropping a 6-0, 6-4 decision to Tulsa's Matthew Kirby.
