MEN’S TENNIS LOSES AT PACIFIC
STOCKTON, Calif. -- Pacific won all three doubles matches, and each of the six singles matches to post a 7-0 victory over Sacramento State in a non-conference men's tennis contest Sunday afternoon at Hal Nelson Tennis Courts.
The loss was the third in a row for the Hornets as the team dropped to 2-6. Pacific improved to 3-5 overall, and 3-1 at home.
Five of the six singles matches were decided in straight sets as Hornet true freshman Ayman Abdulwahab forced three sets in his match at No. 5.
Marek Marksoo fell at No. 1 (7-5, 6-2), Roy Brandys at No. 2 (6-3, 6-2), Niranjan Ram at No. 3 (6-1, 6-0), Tom Miller at No. 4 (6-4, 6-4) and Oliver Andersen lost at No. 6 by a 6-4, 6-3 score.
The Tigers won all three doubles matches to win the doubles point.
Sacramento State will now turn its attention to Big Sky Conference play as the Hornets open the league season next weekend at both Montana (March 1) and Montana State (March 2). The Hornets have won five consecutive Big Sky championships and went 11-1 against league opposition last year (regular season and tournament matches included).
