Box Score

TACOMA, Wash. - Ryan Adams extended his singles win streak to five matches on Saturday but the Pacific Lutheran University men's tennis team was unable to match the firepower of Whitworth University for the second consecutive day, falling 7-2 inside the Lakewood Racket Club.

The Lutes' (3-12, 3-8 Northwest Conference) Adams encountered little resistance at No. 1 singles, cruising to the, 6-0, 6-2, victory over Caleb Hughes for his fifth consecutive victory, improving the first-year's season record to 10-8. Niko Convento seized the opening set at No. 2 singles but was unable to hold on falling, 5-7, 6-1, 6-3, to the Pirates' (4-11, 4-6 NWC) Shane Sandlin. James Okubo was on the wrong end of a, 6-4, 6-2, decision at No. 3 while Justin DeMattos fell, 6-3, 6-4, at No. 4.

In doubles, Adams and Convento clawed to an 8-6 win at No. 1, downing Whitworth's Sandlin and Hughes. Okubo and DeMattos battled hard at No. 2 but ultimately fell, 8-5.

"Adams continues his stellar play, winning his fifth match in a row, but the team fell 7-2 today," said Head Coach John Cassens. "We're excited to have a tough test tomorrow against Whitman and look to close the season with a strong performance."

The Lutes wrap up the season on Sunday morning, facing NWC leaders Whitman College at 10 a.m. at the Lakewood Racket Club.
