Eagle Men's Tennis Sweeps All Seven Points in Win over UNC

Jan. 27, 2007

The Eastern Washington University men's tennis team made it two straight wins with a dominating 7-0 victory at Northern Colorado on Saturday afternoon (Jan. 27). The Eagles are now 2-2 overall and 1-0 in Big Sky Conference play. The Bears fall to 0-1, 0-1 in league play after playing their first Big Sky match in school history.

 

The Eagles as a team went 12-0 in singles sets, sweeping all six contests. Nobody gave up more than five games total in a singles match for Eastern.

 

First, the Eagles were able to secure the doubles point by winning the first two matches to finish play. On the third court, Jonathan Davis and Patrick Millican were victorious over Kyle Barrett and Eric Kinsey, 8-4, while Pannhara Mam and Kyle Schraeder earned an 8-3 win at No. 1 against Austin Nunn/Paul Tschetter. Art Karas and Daniel Pez fell in their contest on the second court, 8-6, to Vinnie Fallico and Kollman Gearhart.

 

In singles play, Millican was the first player to finish a win, defeating Gearhart, 6-2, 6-2, at No. 4. Mam quickly followed with a convincing 6-0, 6-2 victory over Tschetter on the No. 1 court. The win was clinched when Pez earned his first singles win of the year, 6-2, 6-3, at No. 3 against Nunn.

 

Schraeder was next to go into the win column, defeating Fallico, 6-1, 6-4, on the second court. Karas topped Eric Kinsey, 6-3, 6-2, at No. 6 and Keithan Gregg completed the 7-0 win with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Barrett on court five.

 

The Eagles will take to the court next Saturday (Feb. 3) back in Cheney for their first home match of the season, as UC Davis will travel north to take on the Eagles. First serve is slated for 1 p.m.
