SEATTLE – (Feb. 24) The Seattle University men’s tennis team fell to 6-5 overall and snapped a three-game winning streak as they lost to regional opponent Washington 7-0 Saturday evening at the Nordstrom Tennis Center.


UW took control of the match early by taking the doubles point with wins on all three matches. Michael Schoettler and Matt Alderson put up a fight at #2 but ultimately dropped a close match 7-5.


In singles, the Huskies allow the Redhawks to make any kind of a comeback. All six matches went in favor of the home team, securing the 7-0 shutout.


“A lot of credit to the UW players for a strong showing,” assistant coach Chris Borden said. “It is unfortunate that we could not compete better in singles, but we will take what we can from this match moving forward.”

The Redhawks are back in action this coming Friday as they host Portland State at 7:30 p.m. at the Tennis Center at Sand Point.
