Newport Beach native April Ross and San Juan Capistrano ’s Jen Kessy, seeded second in the women’s bracket, appeared to be clicking on all cylinders Friday, as they won both of their matches easily. They beat 31st-seeded Sarah Day and Kristin Ursillo, 21-11, 21-11, and then 18th-seeded Kristen Batt and Brooke Sweat, 21-7, 21-11.

One significant upset did shake up the men’s side. Third-seeded Matt Fuerbringer and Nick Lucena dropped their first-round match, 21-16, 15-21, 20-18, to 30th-seeded Seth Burnham and Aaron Mansfield, and will have to battle all the way back through the contenders’ bracket if they hope to advance to the final. Burnham and Mansfield dropped their next two matches.
