Feb. 2, 2008
The Eastern Washington University men's tennis team (2-2) won both of its matches on Saturday (Feb. 2), defeating Nevada in the morning, 5-2, and Whitman in the evening, 7-0.
At that point, four straight straight-set wins for Eastern put the match in the win column for the Eagles. Schraeder and Nico Riego de Dios had the most dominating singles victories, as Schraeder won 6-4, 6-3 on the second court and Riego de Dios was victorious, 6-3, 6-4, on court three.
Eastern Washington quickly made it a perfect day by sweeping all seven points of its contest with Whitman (0-3). The Eagles took 2-of-3 doubles contests to earn momentum and the all-important doubles point and then sailed through the singles matches, winning each in two sets apiece.
Art Karas had the most dominating singles victory, as he had a 6-0, 6-2 win on court four. In doubles, Mam and Schraeder contributed an 8-2 win over Whitman's top doubles team.
The Eagles will have next week off from competition before playing host to local rival Gonzaga at 5 p.m. on Feb. 12. The Bulldogs are 1-3 and will play Whitman on Sunday (Feb. 3) in its only contest prior to meeting the Eagles.
