BYU tennis: Cougars set to battle 49th-ranked Toreros on the road
After splitting its matches, BYU men’s tennis hits the road for the second straight week for a matchup with No. 49 San Diego on Saturday at noon PDT at San Diego’s Skip and Cindy Hogan Tennis Center.
The Cougars (8-13, 2-4 WCC) look to rebound with a chance at an upset against the first-place Toreros (10-7, 5-0 WCC). San Diego and Pepperdine sit atop the conference standings.
Last weekend BYU clinched a 5-2 come-from-behind win over San Francisco.
With the match at 3-2 in favor of BYU, the No. 1 singles player Francis Sargeant came through in the clutch to clinch the win, 2-6, 6-3, 6-3, against Bernardo Saraiva.
Freshman Matthew Pearce set up Sargeant for the clincher as he picked up his fifth consecutive singles win to secure the point, 6-4, 6-4, against Christian Brockstedt.
The next day the Cougars challenged then-No. 67 Santa Clara but fell, 6-1.
BYU returns home to finish out its regular season with matches against Portland on April 18 and Gonzaga on April 19.
