Singles sweep leads men's tennis to win
All six players won their singles matches as the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs menâ€TMs tennis team defeated the Colorado Christian Cougars 8-1 Monday at the Broadmoor.
Sean Voorhies and Travis Sellentin teamed to win at No. 1 doubles, while Jason Schultz and Jason Bisanti won at No. 3 doubles. The Mountain Lions, who have struggled in doubles this season, carried the momentum into singles play.
Schultz quickly dispatched Eric Hungenberg 6-2, 6-3 and Voorhies topped Jameson Dillon 6-1, 6-1. Schultz has now won three consecutive singles matches and Voorhies has won all four since moving to the No. 2 singles spot.
The most impressive victory was registered by Travis Sellentin, who blanked Adam Delp 6-0, 6-0 at No. 4 singles.
Jason Bisanti and Ken Huston were each forced into a third set, which was played as a 10-point tiebreaker. Both Bisanti and Huston won their respective tiebreakers 10-4.
The final singles victory was notched by Eric Rivera, who was locked into a fierce contest with Kevin Braun at the No. 1 spot. Braun narrowly won the first set, but was unable to continue because of a nagging shoulder injury. His withdrawal gave the Mountain Lions the sweep.
CU-Colorado Springs also played a match on Saturday, a 6-3 loss at Nebraska-Kearney, but the results were not available for publication until Monday.
Schultz and Bisanti gave the Mountain Lions their lone doubles victory in the match. Schultz and Voorhies won in singles play.
CU-Colorado Springs plays its final regular-season match on Tuesday against Colorado State-Pueblo, a contest that was rescheduled from two weeks ago. The Mountain Lions will then travel to Grand Junction for the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference tournament, which begins on Friday.
