   Jenson Brooksby, a 17-year-old qualifier from Carmichael in the Sacramento area, lost to Markos Kalovelonis 6-4, 6-4 today in the second round of the Sargent & Collins, LLP Men's $25,000 Futures in Buffalo, N.Y.
   Kalovelonis, a 24-year-old native of Greece who plays for Russia, pounded nine aces and committed one double fault. Brooksby, who ousted second-seeded Emilio Gomez of Ecuador in the first round, had no aces or double faults.
   Earlier in the week, Brooksby and Alexander Knight fell to Patrick Daciek and Maksim Tikhomirov 5-7, 7-5 [11-9] in a first-round, all-American battle.
   After winning the Easter Bowl boys 18 singles title at Indian Wells in April, Brooksby verbally committed to Texas Christian. The home-schooled senior-to-be plans to enroll at the small, private university in Fort Worth either in the fall of 2019 or in January 2020.
