SPOKANE, Wash. – (Feb. 2) The Seattle University men’s tennis team faced a tough opponent in Gonzaga, and dropped the match 7-0 on Friday evening at the Stevens Tennis Center.

The Redhawks battled all night, but couldn’t find the winning combination. They lost the doubles point with losses in all three matches, and then were shutout in the singles matches.

Emilio Monroy on the third flight dropped the first set 6-2, but recovered and fought back for a 6-3 win in the second set, before falling 10-5 in the decisive tiebreaker in the third set. Assistant coach Chris Borden knows they can improve for future matches.

“Overall, I am disappointed with how we competed today,” said Borden. “We started slow in doubles and struggled to play the important points well in singles. I expect our guys to bounce back and show some resolve in our matches moving forward this weekend.”

The Redhawks will have a few more chances this weekend, as they face Eastern Washington tomorrow at 11 a.m., and then close out the weekend with a match against Whitworth at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.
