RENO, Nev. - The University of Nevada men's tennis team will compete for the first time in two weeks when it travels to Palo Alto to face Stanford on Monday at 11 a.m.
The No. 73 Division I Wolf Pack (8-4) comes into the match with the Cardinal (5-5) off back-to-back victories against UC Davis and Sacramento State. Victor Ouvrard is projected to play from position one for the Wolf Pack, who is 7-5 in singles action on the year. Freshman Robert Allan is currently 10-2 in his young Nevada singles career, and has five doubles victories. The match with Stanford is also the final tune-up before conference play.
"We continue to achieve goals and good attitudes in practice, and now applying our skills is going to be fun," said head coach Erik Burton. "We have some tough matches this week with Stanford as well as rivals UNLV and Fresno State, but we will be ready for the challenge!"
Stanford comes into the match at an even .500 after back-to-back wins over Furman and Boise State. Projected to play from position one in singles is John Morrissey, who holds a 5-4 from that position. Nolan Paige enters the match with a 6-4 record in singles, complimented by three doubles victories.
