RENO, Nev. - The University of Nevada men's tennis team gets back into action when it travels to San Luis Obispo, Calif. to take on Cal Poly on Saturday.
The Wolf Pack (1-1, 0-1 MW) will be in action on Saturday for the first time in nearly two weeks since opening the season. Nevada split two matches in Southern California by downing UC Riverside 6-1, but then was narrowly edged out by conference foe No. 49 San Diego State by a score of 4-3. After such a close loss to the nationally ranked Aztecs, head coach Erik Burton is looking forward to getting back to the court.
"Nevada men's tennis is looking to regain its momentum here in San Luis Obispo," he said. "We expect a strong team from Cal Poly and we are ready to battle all comers. I know this will be a strong weekend for the Wolf Pack."
Senior Victor Ouvrard is leading the charge for the Pack, as Ouvrard was named the Wolf Pack Star of the Week during the week of Jan. 13. The ITA No. 7 Mountain Region player kicked off his season unbeaten, as he is 2-0 in both singles and doubles with his partner Robert Allan. Ryan Andrada is also 2-0 in singles play to begin the season, while four other Pack members are 1-1 in singles action.
The match with Cal Poly will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1.
