Mountain Lions fall to CU-Boulder

By Doug Fitzgerald published January 31, 2004

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's tennis team opened its spring season with a 7-0 loss to Colorado-Boulder on Sunday at the Meadow Creek Tennis and Fitness Club in Lakewood.

The Buffaloes opened by taking all three doubles matches, which counted as only a single team point because of NCAA Division I scoring. Had the match been held at a Division II site, all three doubles matches would have counted as team points.

Two Mountain Lions doubles pairs, Eric Rivera - Shaun Voorhees and Jason Schultz - Travis Sellentin extended their matches to 12 games, losing 8-4.

In singles play, Ken Huston and Jason Bisanti each kept their matches close, falling 6-4 in the second set. Huston dropped his first set 6-2, while Bisanti lost 6-1.

The Buffaloes also swept their match against CSU-Pueblo 7-0 on Sunday.

"We played well for our first time out," said CU-Boulder second-year head coach Sam Winterbotham. "It was a good team effort and we showed good concentration throughout the day."

The Mountain Lions aren't scheduled to play again until March 4, when they travel to Topeka, Kan., for the Washburn Invitational. CU-Colorado Springs will open its home schedule against defending RMAC champion Metro State on March 12 at The Broadmoor.
