By Doug Fitzgerald published September 28, 2004

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's tennis team suffered its first defeat on the fall season, falling to the Colorado State-Pueblo Thunderwolves 7-2 Tuesday at the Broadmoor.

The Mountain Lions are now 3-1 for the season, all of which were Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference matches. CU-Colorado Springs will conclude fall play Saturday against Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colo.

In collegiate tennis, fall matches count towards each school's season record. After Saturday's match, CU-Colorado Springs will not play again until March 25.

On Tuesday, Colorado State-Pueblo swept the Mountain Lions in doubles play, then went on to take four of the six singles matches. CU-Colorado Springs' Sean Voorhies won at No. 1 singles 6-1, 7-6 (7-4), evening his season singles record at 2-2. John Hall accounted for the Mountain Lions' other point with a 7-6 (7-5), 5-7, 1-0 (13-11) win over Kyle Eades at No. 6 singles.
