Mesa men’s tennis team remains perfect in RMAC play

The Colorado Mesa University’s men’s tennis team kept its perfect Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference record intact with an 8-1 win over CSU-Pueblo on Friday, setting up a showdown for first place today against Western New Mexico.

“It’s going to be a showdown,” CMU coach Dan MacDonald said of today’s 9 a.m. match at Pueblo City Park. “It’s been a couple years since we’ve had this solid of a team.”

The Mavs (13-11, 4-0 RMAC) made quick work of the ThunderWolves on Friday.

MacDonald cited the play of Spencer Weinberg and Andres Garcia-Rojas as match highlights. Weinberg picked up a 6-2, 6-2 win over Saul Shrom at No. 2 singles and teamed up with Jordan Lyden to defeat Alex Lesiuk and Shrom at No. 1 doubles, 8-3. Garcia-Rojas, the reigning RMAC player of the week, gutted out a 6-3, 4-6, 10-3 win over Anthony Breitenbach at No. 3 singles and paired with Andres Hernandez at No. 2 doubles to defeat Breitenbach and Tom Chavez 8-4.

Taylor Macres (No. 4), Brason Hollabaugh (No. 5) and Hernandez (No. 6) also contributed singles wins for Mesa. Hollabaugh and Trevor Brown collected a win at No. 3 doubles.

The Colorado Mesa women were also victorious Friday, winning six of nine matches against the ThunderWolves.

Kaylee Davis and Shannen McNamara picked up wins at No. 1 and No. 2 singles, respectively, with Kristyn Wykert continuing her recent hot streak with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Brooke Trevithick at No. 3.

“Kristyn’s been on fire,” MacDonald said. “She’s had a great weekend for us. She hasn’t lost a match.”

Nicole Lessley also had a singles win at No. 6.

Wykert and Skyler Nelson collected a win at No. 2 doubles and Emily Dodson and Katie Metz combined on a No. 3 doubles victory for the Mavs (10-14, 3-1 RMAC).
