Oct. 19, 2013
LAS VEGAS, Nev. - The University of Nevada men's tennis team notched six victories on day three of the ITA Mountain Regionals in Las Vegas.
The Wolf Pack grabbed six wins after it earned three on Thursday, with three in both singles and doubles play, led by both co-captains Quentin Mege and Victor Ouvrard. Mege had two victories in his consolation singles draw, while Ouvrard snatched a win to reach the quarterfinals before he was eliminated.
"The team captains dominated the Wolf Pack's surge today at the ITA Mountain Regionals," head coach Erik Burton said.
Mege first defeated Markus Schleuter of Montana State when Schleuter withdrew due to injury in the second set to begin the day. Mege then ousted No. 7 seed Gilad Berman of UNLV in three sets 6-4, 4-6, 6-0. He awaits a consolation quarterfinals match on Saturday. Ouvrard took down No. 10 seed Jose Bendeck of Idaho in the round of 16 in three sets 6-3, 6-7, 6-4 before the No. 5 seed fell to Alex Gasson, the NO. 17 seed. Ryan Andrada dropped his singles match against the top player from BYU 6-3, 6-3.
In doubles action, the pair of Ouvrard and Robert Allan ousted Alex Grubbs and Andrew Parks of Air Force 8-3 in the second round before disposing of their teammates Lucas Fumgalli and Steven Young 8-2. Mege and Andrada blanked the team of Tomas Cosmai and Curran Wearmouth of Utah State 8-0 to earn their doubles win on the day before falling in the third round. Had they been victorious, they would have met Ouvrard and Allan in the quarterfinals.
The ITA Mountain Regionals continue in Las Vegas on Saturday morning.
