Men's tennis falls to Mines again

Same result. Different day

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's tennis team fell to the Colorado Mines Orediggers 6-3 Sunday at the Broadmoor, marking the second time Mines has defeated the Mountain Lions in the past five days.

CU-Colorado Springs got off to a disappointing start on Sunday, dropping all three doubles matches to give the Orediggers an early lead.

Fortunately, the Mountain Lions played much better in singles, winning the first three contests to even the team score at three points apiece.

Jason Bisanti served Mines its first defeat, posting a straight-sets victory over Ben Dunn at No. 5 singles. With the win, Bisanti redeemed himself for his loss to Dunn last Wednesday. It was clear to Bisanti why his outcome was different the second time around. "I was just on top of my game today," he said. "I was a lot more focused, too."

At No. 4 singles, Travis Sellentin looked sharp as he easily defeated Mark Chung of Mines. Sellentin was pleased with his performance. "I felt my game was very solid and I played up to my potential," he said.

The CU-Colorado Springs win streak continued with Sean Voorhies. Voorhies jumped out to a big lead at No. 2 singles and won a tight second set to earn another team point for the Mountain Lions.

Although the Orediggers retook the lead for good with Matt Rychlik's win at No. 1 singles, the final outcome wasn't decided until Jordan Revielle knocked off CU-Colorado Springs' Jason Schultz in a back-and-forth thriller at No. 3 singles.
