Warriors Close Out Regular Season with Sixth-Straight “W”

Submitted by: jwyatt - April 12th, 2014
Fifth-ranked Westmont Men's Tennis has secured a first-round bye in next week's GSAC Men's Tennis Championship

By Jordan Wyatt:

On the final day of seasonal competition on campus at Lynn Abbott Courts, Westmont Men’s Tennis (14-5, 8-2 GSAC) capped off their prosperous 2014 regular-season run by romping Biola (RV) (8-15, 4-6) by a score of 9-0.

The fifth-ranked Warriors have now procured their sixth-straight victory, surpassing their five-win mark that inaugurated this year’s campaign. Furthermore, today’s triumph was the squad’s third sweep in a row.

Over the course of the streak, the men in maroon have defeated their opponents by a collective mark of 50-4, including three wins over ranked opponents: #13 Concordia, third-ranked (NCAA III) Williams (Mass.), and #19 (NCAA III) UC Santa Cruz.

Westmont junior Joshua Barnard

By Jordan Wyatt:

Westmont’s Joshua Barnard was named the NAIA Men’s Tennis Player of the Week, the national office announced Wednesday. The native of Glendora is the first ever Warrior Tennis athlete to receive the award.

The junior was selected based on his performances from March 31-April 6 and was chosen from a pool of over 25 nominees residing from conference, independent, and unaffiliated group award winners.

Barnard aided fifth-ranked Westmont Men’s Tennis (12-5, 7-2 GSAC) to a flawless 3-0 streak with an untarnished 6-0 record in doubles and singles play combined. The Warriors claimed their three matches 8-1, 7-2, and 9-0.

Crushing two top-tier foes in the process, fifth-ranked Westmont Men’s Tennis has improved to 11-5 (6-2 GSAC) on the 2014 campaign after fortifying three victories in five days this past week.

On Tuesday, Mark Basham’s lads took down the #11 Eagles of Concordia (8-7, 5-3) 8-1 in Costa Mesa to kick-start their three-match winning streak. The triumph broke the teams’ league tie and sequestered second place in the Golden State Athletic Conference regular-season standings outright for the Warriors.

The very next day, Westmont recorded a 7-2 home conquest over third-ranked – and defending NCAA Division III national champion – Williams (Mass.) (8-2). The loss with just the fifth for the Ephs in the last two seasons combined.

Men’s Tennis Toppled by Vanguard in a Marathon Match

Westmont senior John Bertram converts a finesse return

By Jordan Wyatt:

Golden State Athletic Conference Men’s Tennis conjured a contest for the ages this afternoon, as fifth-ranked Westmont (8-4, 4-1 GSAC) and fourth-ranked Vanguard dueled it out in Santa Barbara.

The two teams combined to provide a competition of epic proportions that rivaled even the most thrilling sporting tales of ancient Greece. Lasting 5 hours and 17 minutes, the marathon match even supplied a cathartic, tragic ending, as the Warriors fell 5-4 to the Lions at the culmination of doubles play.

Vanguard vigorously mounted a 2-0 advantage in singles, winning assertively in the number five and six slots. Neverthless, Westmont’s (#35)* John Bertram cut the Warriors’ deficit to one with a decisive victory of his own at court three.

By Jordan Wyatt:

The Jeffs of Amherst (Mass.) (7-1) are on a massive tour of Southern California. In full, the fourth-ranked squad in NCAA Division III is competing in 17 matches over the course of six days: with matches against such opponents as #11 Concordia (L 5-4), Hope International (W 9-0), and fourth-ranked Vanguard (W 5-4).

On Tuesday, fifth-ranked Westmont Men’s Tennis (6-3) served as the sunny (high of 75 degrees) host to the team hailing from central Massachusetts (high of 44 degrees). Although the weather outside was warm, the Jeffs left the Warriors feeling cold, defeating the home side by a score of 6-3.

Without customary number one doubles and singles participant, eighth-ranked (ITA) Rodrigo Schaffer, unavailable due to a coaching decision, Westmont head coach Mark Basham relied on last season’s top doubles duo to provide an early spark.

Warriors Scorch Firestorm, Gear Up for Vanguard

Westmont sophomore Travis Kimsey rockets a ball to the opposing team

By Jordan Wyatt:

Head coach Mark Basham and company departed Phoenix red-hot. However, this is not due to sweltering desert temperatures or because they just clashed with the “Firestorm” of Arizona Christian (1-4, 1-4 GSAC).

Instead, the fifth-ranked team in the NAIA completed a 9-0 scorching of their Golden State Athletic Conference opponent to move to 6-1 (4-0) on the season, improving on their already immaculate start in league play.

When asked about his team’s 12-set sweep of singles, as well as their outstanding display in doubles, Basham gave a straightforward answer, “We just played solid tennis.”

Warriors' senior Tim Goranson

By Jordan Wyatt:

Fifth-ranked Westmont Men’s Tennis and second-ranked (NCAA Division III) Claremont-Mudd-Scripps met Thursday afternoon in Claremont for a battle of the Goliaths. Three hours and 20 minutes after the match commenced, it was the Stags (1-0) who cast the last stone, besting the Warriors (5-1, 3-0 GSAC) 6-3.

The Warriors’ combination of Rodrigo Schaefer and Joshua Barnard continued their doubles’ success, defeating the Stags’ number one doubles tandem 8-6. The duo improved to 5-0 on the year, pushing Westmont number one doubles to 6-0 in 2014.

However, Westmont dropped their next two doubles matches, quickly falling into a one-two hole.

By Jordan Wyatt:

Westmont Men’s Tennis now boasts an unblemished 5-0 (3-0 GSAC) record after defeating two Golden State Athletic Conference opponents in a four-day span.

Following a narrow 5-4 escape against the Eagles of #12 Concordia (2-3, 2-1) this past Saturday, the Warriors went on to trounce the Royals of Hope International (0-4, 0-4) 9-0 on Tuesday.

The Eagles challenged the Warriors to the wire, losing the match only after Westmont’s senior duo of John Bertram and Tim Goranson utilized four match point service attempts to finally drop Concordia’s number two doubles team 8-6.
