Doubles wins lift UCCS past Yellowjackets
COLORADO SPRINGS - The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs men's tennis team won all three of its doubles matches and two of their singles matches in a 5-4 win over the Montana State-Billings Yellowjackets on Thursday at the Country Club of Colorado.
The Mountain Lions improved to 6-3 in dual matches with the nonconference win.
In singles play at No. 6 Ken Huston crushed Montana State's Josh Bernes in a decisive win with a score of 10-2. At No. 1 Sean Voorhies beat Paco Sanchez with a 10-4 win. Jason Schultz tried to muster up a win but was beaten by Gabriel Diaz with a close score of 11-10.
Because of cold weather and a lack of court space, all of the singles matches were played as 10-win super sets rather than the normal best-of-three six-game sets.
In doubles play Josh Johnson and Sean Voorhies defeated Billing's Tytus Stempniewicz and Gabriel Diaz in a 9-8 win. Also Eric Rivera and Jason Schultz beat Sergio Diaz and Paco Sanchez with a score of 9-8. And at No. 3 Marc Knutila and Eddie Weston took an 8-5 win over Jarrett Pummell and Josh Barnes.
