Pacific Edges Nevada in Shortened Match
STOCKTON, Calif. - To be sure weather and darkness would not force a second re-schedule between the two teams this year, the University of Nevada men's tennis team took on Pacific in a shortened match Wednesday, falling to the Tigers 4-0.
Matches were halted when Pacific reached four total points, and when they won the second doubles match, earning the doubles point to begin play.
Overall, matches went unfinished at No. 1 doubles, and No. 2 and No. 5 singles. The No. 6 singles match never got underway.
Nevada's Kristian Kuharszky was in the third set of his match, tied at two games apiece with Pacific's Ivan Castro, when the match was called. Wessim Derbel also pushed his match to three sets, falling 6-0, 2-6, 6-2.
When the Wolf Pack competes again, it will take on Northern Arizona, in its home opener March 26.
