CHICAGO – (April 14) The Seattle University men’s tennis team got off to a great start in the last Western Athletic Conference weekend of the regular season with a 6-1 victory over Chicago State on Saturday afternoon at the H-F Racquet and Fitness Club.

Defending WAC doubles team of the week, Matt Alderson and Colton Weeldreyer led the way for the Redhawks with a 6-3 win against Chicago State’s top doubles team. Despite the Cougars winning the second match on the second court, the Redhawks earned the doubles point with a win at court #3 by default.

In singles, the Redhawks played well on all courts, and clinched the conference win with the first three matches. Jeremiah Kalmus won his match at #6 by default, Alex Chan won at #5 6-2, 6-0, and Emilio Monroy secured the win with a 1-6, 6-1, 6-1 win at #4, making it 4-0. Weeldreyer and Arshak Ghazaryan followed with two more wins for SU at the third and second court. Weeldreyer won 6-2, 7-5, while Ghazaryan took his match 2-6, 6-3, 10-7.

“Great team effort by the guys today,” head coach Adam Reeb said. “We played aggressive and with a lot of intensity all match which was great to see. We fought hard on every court and everyone played with a lot of heart. We’re excited and ready for a super tough UTRGV team tomorrow morning.”

The Redhawks will battle UTRGV in the last regular season match of the year at 7 a.m. in Chicago tomorrow.
