DAVIS, Calif. – Brett Bacharach ended his day with victories in both matches played, and Parker Kelley continued his torrid streak of singles success in Sunday’s non-conference match at the Marya Welch Tennis Center, one that saw UC Davis drop 5-2 against the UT Arlington Mavericks.
The Aggies drop to 6-8 while UT Arlington improves to 5-4 on the season.
Paired with George Horowitz, Brett Bacharach earned the first of two victories on the day be capturing UC Davis’ lone doubles victory by defeating Sebastia Erimicioiu and Javier Perez 8-5.
Competing for the Aggies as their No. 4 singles, Bacharach took the first set 6-4 against Erimicioiu before allowing his Maverick opponent to even the match at one set apiece. Leading 4-1 in the third, Erimicioiu chose to end his matchup prematurely, giving UC Davis one of its two points earned throughout the afternoon.
Capturing the other point for the Aggies was Parker Kelley; competing solely in the No. 3 singles spot, Kelly easily dispatched Carlos Arbiza 6-4, 6-1 to earn his fourth singles triumph in his last five matches.
UC Davis will not return to action until April 6 when the Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors visit the Marya Welch Tennis Center to compete in the Aggies’ second Big West match of the season.
