GEORGETOWN, Texas - On their final home weekend the Southwestern men's tennis team lost 7-2 to the University of Texas Dallas but saw some positive play to prepare for the SCAC Conference Championships.
With extremely windy conditions and an impending storm the teams kicked off action with singles play. The Pirates opened well, taking two singles matches. Alex Lam swept Leib in straight sets, 6-4, 6-0 in #1 singles while Dax Collison battled Chenkin in #6 singles and emerged with the win, winning in a tie-breaker, 1-6, 6-4, 11-9.
As doubles action came a new line-up brought positive outcomes despite losing all three matches.
