   In a matchup of former University of Virginia teammates, JC Aragone of Yorba Linda in the Los Angeles area defeated Collin Altamirano of Sacramento 6-2, 7-6 (3) today in the first round of the $108,320 First Republic Tiburon (Calif.) Challenger at the Tiburon Peninsula Club.
   Aragone, 24, improved to 2-0 against Altamirano, 23. They played on three NCAA championship teams at Virginia (2015-17).
   Donald Young of Atlanta dismissed another member of Virginia's 2015 NCAA title team, Ryan Shane, 6-1, 6-1 in 46 minutes.
   Young, a 30-year-old left-hander, is ranked No. 242 after reaching a career-high No. 38 in 2012. Shane won the 2015 NCAA singles championship.
   Wild card Brandon Holt, a USC senior and the son of International Tennis Hall of Famer Tracy Austin, topped former Trojans All-American Raymond Sarmiento, who gained entry with a protected ranking, 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-3.
   Holt earned a second-round rematch against top-seeded Tommy Paul of Greenville, N.C., on Wednesday. Paul led 5-0 when Holt retired with a shoulder injury last year in Tiburon.
   Here are the Tiburon singles and doubles draws and Tuesday's schedule.
