Men's Tennis Remains in Tacoma for Weekend Duals

Men's Tennis Remains in Tacoma for Weekend Duals

Written by Student Assistant Kelsey Littleton

TACOMA, Wash. - This weekend the Pacific Lutheran University men's tennis team remains in Tacoma, traveling across town for a rematch with the University of Puget Sound on Saturday before hosting first place Lewis & Clark College on Sunday inside the Sprinker Recreation Center.

Last weekend the Lutes (1-3, 1-2 Northwest Conference) played their first home matches of the season against UPS and Linfield College. The Lutes dominated the Loggers 6-3, winning all three doubles matches before falling to the Wildcats 9-0. Outstanding players for the matches against UPS included Ryan Adams, Niko Convento and James Okubo, with all three winning both their singles and doubles matches.

Junior Chan Thourk is looking forward to this weekend's battle against PLU's Tacoma rival after grinding out a 9-7 victory over the Loggers with doubles partner John Woelfel.

"We expect them to come out very aggressive and desperate for the win but as long as we play within our games we will be just fine," said the applied physics major.

Although a win against the Loggers (0-5, 0-5 NWC) are what the Lutes are aiming for, Thourk expects this weekend to be tough, considering the men will take on the number one ranked team in the NWC, Lewis & Clark (5-0, 5-0 NWC).

"We will continue to pick apart our games during practice this week and hopefully play our best tennis going into this weekend," Thourk said.

Head Coach John Cassens wants his men to be ready for a fight against UPS and Lewis & Clark.

"We were pretty close last time so we need to be ready for a fight [against UPS]," Cassens said.

"Lewis and Clark will be a very strong team we will need to have a very strong performance against this nationally ranked team."

Match play begins at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday at the University of Puget Sound's Tennis Pavilion and 10:30 a.m. at Sprinker Rec Center.
