MEN'S TENNIS CONCLUDES FALL SEASON
MORAGA, Calif. - The Sacramento State’s men tennis team wrapped up its fall schedule early at the Gael Classic held at Saint Mary’s College.
Senior Marko Starcevic, sophomore Aliaksandr Malko, and freshmen Daniel Diaz and Josh Lorentzen each competed for the Hornets on Saturday until the final day of the tournament was canceled due to inclement weather.
In singles action, Diaz and Lorentzen both rebounded to win their consolation matches in the Flight B round. Diaz retired Saint Mary’s Gavin Leon due to an injury, and Lorentzen defeated Saint Mary’s Sherif Hamdy 6-3, 6-2. The freshmen duo also paired for doubles play, defeating Stanford’s Fawaz Hourani and Sam Ecker 8-5 in the Blue flight quarterfinals before falling to Nevada’s Quentin Mege and Victor Ouvrard in the semifinals, 8-3.
In Flight A doubles action, Malko and Starcevic fell to Santa Clara’s Kyle Dandan and Nico Vinel in a close 9-8 (14) loss in the quarterfinals. The pair bounced back from the tough loss to defeat Nevada’s Jordan Rozenfeld and Wessim Derbel 8-6 in the Flight A consolation round.
