Voorhies keeps hot, Mountain Lions down Mesa

By Mike McNeely published April 11, 2005

Sean Voorhies has been on fire lately. UCCS' No. 1 tennis player has been perfect this spring and has rolled off eighth straight victories overall in singles competition.

His latest win came Saturday as the Mountain Lions won their second straight, beating Mesa State 6-3.

Mountain Lion coach Matt Hays attributes Voorhies play to hard work over the offseason.

"He worked his tail off lifting weights and running," said Hays. "He is playing the best tennis I have ever seen him play."

Voorhies also won 6-1, 6-1 over Colorado Christian's Jameson Dillon as the Mountain Lions broke two-match losing streak by pounding the Cougars on April 6.

The Mountain Lions played their best match of the spring as they completely dismantled the Cougars 9-0. The combination of Travis Sellentin and Jason Schultz won their doubles match 8-0, as did Eric Rivera and Jason Bisanti. Rivera also shutout his opponent, Aaron Subich, at No. 2 singles wining 6-0, 6-0.

The win over CCU came on the heels of a pair of 6-3 loses to Colorado State-Pueblo and Metro State. Poor doubles play against both the Thunderwolves and Roadrunners hurt the Mountain Lions. UCCS won just two of the six doubles matches.
