Men’s Tennis

The men’s tennis team picked up two victories this weekend against the Nebraska Huskers and the Boise State Broncos.

The Bulldogs have not beaten the Broncos in the last four meetings.

Fresno State was scheduled to face Nebraska on Friday, but rain forced the teams to meet on Saturday.

On Saturday, the ‘Dogs swept the Huskers 6-0.

The Bulldogs weren’t done just yet.

In a last second decision, head coach Jay Udwadia decided to start the matches with Boise State because of possible weather troubles and Fresno State won the match 4-2.

Mirko Zapletal won in straight sets over No. 60 Clancy Shields. (6-4, 6-1)

After losing the first set, Tejesvi Veerepalli came back to win two straight sets 6-3, 6-2 over Boise State’s Brent Werbeck.

The team plays its next matches against San Diego State on the road.

The Bulldogs had a tough shooting night against the Aggies as they shot 26.9 percent from the field.

Senior center Erica Henry scored a team-high 10 points and grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds.
