STOCKTON, Calif. - The University of Nevada started off the day well, but couldn't maintain its hot start and dropped its dual match with Pacific on Saturday by a score of 5-2.
The Wolf Pack (8-9, 0-2 MW) dropped the non-conference match with the Tigers (12-5) after it started the day off well by winning the doubles point, but came away with only one singles victory to close out the day. The Pack was still without co-captain Victor Ouvrard in his normal position one spot for the match due to injury. Head coach Erik Burton saw some ways his team could progress.
"There is still a lot for us to grow and improve on mental toughness so we can be successful against even teams in the future," he said.
Moez Echargui picked up the singles victory from position one against Alex Golding, as he powered past him in straight sets 6-2, 7-5.
In doubles, Echargui and Quentin Mege seized a tough win for the Pack, as they pulled out the 9-8(4) victory after a tough battle with Golding and Denis Stolyarov. Andrew Poustie and Fernando Sunago snatched the other doubles victory after they powered past Alex Hamilton and and Ben Mirkin by a score of 8-6.
The Wolf Pack is in action when it returns home this Friday to face Mountain West foe New Mexico beginning at 12 p.m.
