DAVIS, Calif. -
UC Davis came out strong, capturing the opening three doubles matches, then held on in singles as the Aggies picked up its second win of the season with a 6-3 victory over Nevada Friday afternoon at Hickey Courts.
With the win the Aggies improve to 2-6 on the second.
The Aggies took the opening doubles matches as Greg Lee and Paul Dilloway at No.1 defeated Adam Jooste and Rudy Leuschner, 8-5. Ross Barasch and Kyle Trinosky continued their fine play at No.2 with an 8-2 win over Daniel Ericsson and Milos Popovic. Blake Roberts and Charles Nuwer, teaming together for the first time this season, came away with an 8-4 win at No.3 over Jason Yelley and McClure Wallace.
In singles play, Lee improved to 19-2 on the season and ran his winning streak to 15 dating back to the fall season with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Jooste at No.1. Dilloway also was a straight-set winner at No.2, defeating Leuschner while Roberts, playing his first match of the dual season, needed three sets for the 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 win over Ericsson. Roberts was returning after a sprained ankle kept him out of the team's first seven matches.
"I thought the team came out mentally prepared in double and that set the tone early," said Aggie Head Coach Daryl Lee. "Hopefully this is something we can build on throughout the rest of the season."
UC Davis will next be in action on Sunday when it faces No.61 Fresno State in Fresno. Matchtime is set for 2pm.
