    CAMBRIDGE, MASS. -- The three-time defending NCAA champs took in their first fall tune-up with a cross country trip to Harvard this weekend. The Trojans engaged in singles and doubles battles on the East Coast, facing players from Harvard, Texas A&M and Michigan at the Fall Chowder Fest. Sophomores #15 Ray Sarmiento and #66 Emilio Gomez both earned singles honors for undefeated runs through their respective competition, and freshman Yannick Hanfmann was named the Corey Wynn '40 Freshman of the Tournament for his 3-0 mark in singles play. It was the first competition of the season for the Trojans, including the first collegiate action for USC newcomers Hanfmann, Eric Johnson and Jonny Wang.
