Tennis: ‘Dogs top Wildcats

Fresno State took down a Pac-12 school for the second day in a row, this time in men’s tennis.

The Bulldogs earned their third straight victory and ninth of the season Thursday with a 4-3 victory over the Arizona Wildcats at Spalding G. Wathen Tennis Center.

The ‘Dogs (9-6) won two of three doubles matches Thursday. In Court 1, underclassmen Adam Glynn and Euan McIntosh took care of Arizona’s Shinde and Naoki Takeda 6-3. In Court 2, upperclassmen Sai Kartik Nakireddi and Nikolas Papic beat David Mushayev and Shoki Kasahara by a score of 6-4.

The Bulldogs failed to keep the momentum going in Court 3, as Joshua Zeoli and Eric Komati dropped a match 6-2 to UA’s Jason Jaruvang and Matt Dunn.

After coming out successful in the doubles match, Kartik fell to Takeda in the singles match on Court 1. Fresno State took care of business on Courts 2 and 3, as McGlynn beat Shinde and fellow Bulldog Zeoli came out on top over Mushayev.

In Court 4, Papic fell to Jaruvang after winning his doubles match earlier in the day. The matchup on Court 5 featured another win for Fresno State as McIntosh beat Will Kneale. Court 6’s match had Arizona win to split the singles match at three wins for each squad as freshman Youssef Hassan fell to Karahara.

Fresno State takes its 3-game win streak on the road to New Mexico next Friday for a 1 p.m. conference match.
