(SANTA BARBARA, Calif.) #9 Westmont men’s tennis team (4-3, 4-1 GSAC) had their work cut out for them this afternoon as they hosted #21 San Diego Christian (5-2, 3-2 GSAC) on the Abbott Tennis Courts.
“We played well. It was a very tough match. We knew it was going to be difficult against them,” opened head coach Mark Basham. “I think that the Hawks are going to be a top 15 team in the NAIA, so it was a great win for us today.”
As usual, the Warriors opened with doubles play this afternoon and ended up winning two out of the three matchups. On court one, Carl-Philip Lindqvist and Travis Kimsey were upset by Brendan Aguilar and Leonardo Urquidi by a score of 8-2. But on court number two, Westmont’s Mathis and Sibbel took care of business with 8-1 win against De Romas and Zasadnyy.
