FRESNO, Calif. --- The University of Nevada men's tennis team had another closely contested match but couldn't pull out the win against Fresno State, falling by a score of 4-3.
The Wolf Pack (8-8, 0-2 MW) has now fallen to .500 after the loss to the Bulldogs (6-13, 1-1 MW). Four victories on the day were not enough to get the Pack a victory, but the dual match came down to the wire and the final point was decided on court two where Felipe Fritz overtook Fernando Sunago. Head coach Erik Burton sees that his team still has some maturing to do.
"We need to be more mature and more disciplined to save our energy and make the right decisions at key moments," he said.
The Wolf Pack earned three singles victories on the day, kick started by Moez Echargui. He steamrolled over Reid deLaubenfels in straight sets for the 6-1, 6-2. Robert Allan is back in the winning column after he also cruised to a straight set victory over Sam MacNeil by a score of 6-3, 6-2. The final singles victory came from Ryan Andrada, as he powered past Jeremy Quiroz 6-1, 7-5.
The Wolf Pack is back in action again on April 6 when it takes on Pacific in Stockton, Calif. at 3 p.m.
