Jan. 30, 2004
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH - Jason Trask improved to 3-0 in number four singles, but it wasn't enough as Utah State's men's tennis team fell to Utah, 6-1 Friday night. With the loss, the Aggies fall to 1-3 on the season while Utah improves to 1-1.
"Utah played really well with the lead tonight," said head coach Christian Wright. "They were very solid in everything that they did."
USU fell behind early by dropping all three doubles matches. The Aggies' closest matches in doubles would come at the number two and three spots. Hannes Schenk and Trask dropped the number two doubles match, 8-6, to Miron Mann and Jason Yap. Jonah Nelson and Ryan Bair then fell 8-6 in their number three doubles match with the Ute duo of Young and Scott.
In singles, Jason Trask continued to be the most consistent Aggie as he recorded the 6-1, 7-6, straight-set victory against the Utes' Yap. Utah swept the other singles matches in straight sets to capture the win.
"Jason is playing very well right now," said Wright. "He is a tough match-up for most of his opponents and has pulled through for us thus far."
USU concludes its four-match road-trip at Idaho State on Tues., Feb. 3. The match begins at 2 p.m. (MST)
