DAVIS, Calif. - The University of Nevada men's tennis team was victorious in its match with the UC Davis Aggies on Saturday by a score of 5-2.
The Wolf Pack (7-4) got back in the win column after the win over the Aggies, who sit at 6-7 after the loss. Nevada began the day by losing the doubles point, but the Pack responded with five singles victories to finish the day. Despite the rough start in doubles, head coach Erik Burton was satisfied with the victory.
"We got the win but doubles just wasn't there, UC Davis is a tough team," he said. "We are starting to understand the attitude side of a competitive team. Our improvement is important and winning is a positive result for us."
Nevada was victorious in singles positions two through six, including a win by Robert Allan. As a freshman, he is currently 11-1 after a victory over Brett Bacharach from position three in three sets 6-4, 6-7, 7-5. Fernando Sunago was victorious from position two, as he battled with Parker Kelley for three sets before pulling out the victory 6-7, 6-4, 6-3. Andrew Poustie earned a victory in his singles match as he cruised over Adam Luba 6-4, 6-1. Ryan Andrada got in the win column after he defeated Hugo Verdi-Fortin in straight sets 6-4, 6-4.
