Bulldogs Bulldoze Loyola 6-1

March 12, 2005

San Diego, CA - The Yale men's tennis team triumphed over Loyola Marymount University, winning all the singles matches for a 6-1 victory. The Bulldogs, last ranked 71st, now have a 3-6 record.

 

Loyola was able to claim a single point by winning all of the doubles matches.

However, Loyola's doubles success did not lend itself to the singles matches; Yale systematically crushed Loyola in singles play. In the No.1 and No. 2 singles contests, Brandon Wai and Ryan Murphy both won in straight sets. Wai won the No. 1 spot, 6-4, 6-4, and Murphy claimed No. 2 with 6-4, 7-5.

 

Milosz Gudzowski triumphed in the No. 3 spot, winning the first set 6-3, struggling in the second 3-6, but then came back in the third set to clinch the win 6-3.

 

Rowan Reynolds claimed the No.4 match in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3. Johnny Lu went 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 to wrap up the No. 5 game, and Rory Green rounded out the six Yale victories with a 7-6, 7-5 victory.

 

Next, Yale travels to Boise, Idaho to compete against Portland on Thurs., Mar. 17.
