In its final regular-season road match, BYU men’s tennis fell to No. 49 first-place San Diego, 6-1, in West Coast Conference action Saturday.
“We lost to a good team on their home courts,” BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. “We won a doubles match and a singles match, so there were some bright spots.”
The Cougars (8-14, 2-5 WCC) fell behind early to the Toreros (12-7, 6-0 WCC), falling in two of three doubles matches.
Freshman Aidan Carrazedo picked up the singles win for BYU at the No. 6 slot. The South African took the first set, 6-2, and then fell in the second in the tiebreaker, 6-7(6). Carrazedo pulled out the win in the shortened third set, 1-0(7).
In singles, 57th-ranked Clarke Spinosa proved to be too much for the captain Sargeant as he fell, 6-1, 6-3.
“We competed well at every position so I was pleased with that,” coach Pearce said. “We're looking forward to being at home next weekend to finish out conference play.”
The Cougars return home to finish out the regular season against Portland on Friday and Gonzaga on Saturday, before the WCC Championships on April 23-26.
