USAFA, Colo. - Utah State men's tennis (9-13, 0-5 MW) is still searching for its first win in the Mountain West after a 5-2 loss at Air Force on Sunday. The Aggies pushed four matches to three sets, but couldn't quite finish.
In doubles, junior Marcus Fritz and senior Fredrik Peterson defeated Alex Grubbs and Jack McCullers, 8-2, at the first position, but Air Force managed to win the next two matches and win the doubles point. Freshman Dennis Baumgartner and junior Matt Sweet fell to Andy Jackson and Andrew Parks, 8-6, at the second position, while senior Andrew Whiting and freshman Sebastian Schneider lost a close match, 8-5, to Grant Taylor and Lucas Fumagalli at the third position.
In singles, Grubbs defeated Peterson, 6-0, 6-4, at the No. 4 spot, before Fritz put USU on the board when he topped McCullers in three sets, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, at the No. 2 spot. Baumgartner fell in a close match, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, to Jackson at the No. 1 spot, and Sweet dropped his own three-set match, 6-3, 6-7, 6-2, at the No. 3 position. Schneider pushed his individual winning streak to three matches as he defeated Parks, 6-2, 6-2, at the No. 5 spot. Freshman Tomas Cosmai fell to Fumagalli, 6-1, 3-6, 10-7, in a tiebreaker at the No. 6 spot.
