Westmont Men’s Tennis had a tough 2015 season (10-15) that was riddled with injury. Even with set-backs their season still included a semifinal round appearance in the Men’s Tennis Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament and a first round appearance in the NAIA National Tournament.

With five new players and eight out of nine players returning from last season, Westmont Men’s Tennis looks forward to a healthy and resilient upcoming season.

Last Season:

Head coach Mark Basham shared his perspective on last season and how the current team will build off of it.

“My perspective on last season was a mix of positive memories along with some frustrating ones,” explained Basham. “In my six seasons as Coach we had the most injuries than we had in any other season – some of which were fluky injuries and some of which were not.

“We lost freshman Luke Whalen (now a sophomore) to a stress fracture in his labrum midway through, which definitely hurt our team since Luke had been playing mostly #1.

“We beat Concordia and San Diego Christian early on in the season but lost to them later in the season. We lost a very tough match to Concordia 5-4 at home which was a huge match for us. We then had further injuries and a very tough schedule to follow.”

The Warriors made it to the semifinal round of the GSAC Tournament where they lost to Vanguard 5-0.

“At Nationals we lost in the first round to a tough Reinhardt 5-4, with the match coming down to #6 singles where we lost 7-6 in the 3rd set.”

In their season opener, the Westmont Men’s Tennis team (0-1) was defeated by the Banana Slugs of UC Santa Cruz by a score of 7-2.

The Banana Slugs won all three doubles matches in well fought games. Richter and Flora defeated Carl Lindquist and Travis Kimsey 8-6, Stone and Leuchenko defeated Christian Mathis and Tommy Nightingale 8-3, and deDuff and Hollister defeated Luke Whalen and Jordan Strandness 8-5.

Singles play looked promising for the Warriors as they won two out of the first three matches. Lindquist notched the Warriors’ first win when he overcame Stone in three sets 7-5, 3-6, (10-8). Then, Richter of UC Santa Cruz conquered Kimsey 6-3, 6-3. Mathis kept hope alive for the Warriors when he defeated deDuff in three sets in an outstanding tiebreaker 4-6, 6-1, (13-11).

Westmont Takes 11th in Directors’ Cup

Submitted by: Ron Smith - June 10th, 2015

For the sixth year in a row, Westmont Athletics has finished in the top 20 in the NAIA Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup which is administered by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). The 11th place finish in the final 2015 standings is the fourth highest in program history. In both 1999 and 2002, the Warriors finished in seventh place. In 1996, the inaugural year of the Directors’ Cup Award, Westmont placed 10th.

The Directors’ Cup seeks to recognize athletic programs which perform well over a variety of sports. Points are awarded based on the best finishes at the national championships by an institution’s teams. A limit of six men’s teams and six women’s teams may add to the point total.

Westmont tallied 601, just 1.5 points behind Cal State San Marcos in 10th place and 23.5 points ahead of Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) in 12th place.

A national championship runner-up finish by men’s basketball earned 90 points for the Warriors while the women’s basketball program brought in 83 points as a national championship semifinalist.

Honors for Lindqvist

(SANTA BARBARA, Calif.) Upon the conclusion of his first year in a Warrior uniform, junior Carl-Philip Lindqvist was named to the NAIA Men’s Tennis Second Team All American roster of sixteen. Despite the first round knockout of the NAIA National Tournament last week in Mobile, Alabama, Lindqvist has proved to be one of the top competitors in the nation.

Due to many season long injuries, the Warriors found it necessary to change up their team rankings multiples times throughout the season. That being said, Lindqvist has split time between number one and number two singles. At the end of a season packed full of great competition, Carl holds an overall singles record of 10-12 (3-8 number one singles, 7-4 number two singles).

(MOBILE, Ala.) This morning, the Westmont men’s tennis 2015 season came to an abrupt end after being defeated by Reinhardt University in the First Round of the NAIA Men’s Tennis National Championship. #13 Westmont seemingly had the odds stacked in their favor as they went up against #20 Reinhardt. While the injury plagued Warriors battled the entire time, Reinhardt eventually walked away with a 5-4 heartbreaking win over Westmont.

The Warrior men started off the day trailing 1-2 after doubles play. On court number one, Josh Barnard and Carl Lindqvist tried their very best to upend Maksim Yorsh and Nikita Hrynov. But long rallies and extremely well placed shots led to an 8-3 victory for the Eagles. On court number two, Christian Mathis and Travis Kimsey started off a little slow, but were able to rally back multiple times to put themselves back in a position to win. Unfortunately, Emory Deloach and Nicolas Duarte capitalized on their opportunities and closed out the match with an 8-5 win, putting their team up two matches to zero.

Court number three, featuring Jan Sibbel and Tommy Nightingale was the only doubles win for the Warriors this afternoon, but they snuck away with a 9-7 victory over Reinhardt.

(SANTA BARBARA, Calif.) The #13 Westmont men’s tennis team (10-14) will be taking on #20 Reinhardt (Ga.) (11-3) in the First Round of the NAIA Men’s Tennis National Championship this week in Mobile, Ala. The Warrior men have officially received an at large bid to the 24 team single elimination tournament that runs May 12-16.

This will be the Eagles first NAIA National Tournament appearance in program history. They worked their way to an automatic bid this season by winning the Appalachian Athletic Conference Championship. Ten consecutive match victories have led them to a record of 11-3 heading into their time in Mobile.

The Eagles are expected to be led by junior Maksim Yorsh and freshman Nikita Hrynov who have both recently received post season conference honors.

The Warriors are making their sixth straight National Tournament appearance, but this is the first year that they have not received a first round bye.
