DAVIS, Calif. - The University of Nevada men's tennis team is bringing home a title from the Aggie Invitational in Davis, Calif. after winning a finals match on the final day.
The Pack had two finals matches on the third day of the Aggie Invitational, and was victorious in one thanks to co-captain Quentin Mege. He was able to stop Adam Levie of host UC Davis in straight sets 6-1, 6-3 to win the ITA California Singles bracket. It was a sharp turnaround for Mege from when the Pack was at the ITA All-American pre-qualifiers, according to head coach Erik Burton.
"After a tough start in Tulsa, Mege came back and had a very strong weekend," he said.
Andrew Poustie played against Robin Cambier of Oregon, but was defeated in his semifinal match in the ITA Aggie Singles draw 6-3, 6-3.
"Poustie was going up against the No. 1 guy from Oregon," Burton said. "Andrew had a good tournament as Nevada's normal No. 4 player in our usual line up, and its great to see Andrew challenge a Pac-12 No. 1 player."
In their finals match of the ITA California Doubles draw, Mege and Billy Bumgardner were defeated by Bryce McKelvie and James Wade of UC Davis in a close battle 8-6.
The Wolf Pack will be in action again when it rolls into Las Vegas for the ITA Mountain Regionals next week.
