PROVO, Utah — The Saint Mary’s men’s tennis team played its second match in two days, and dropped a tough fight to BYU in the Cougars final home match of the season.

BYU (13-9, 6-1 WCC) got off to a fast start, claiming two doubles wins for the 1-0 lead. The Cougars notched wins on court 2, and then court 1 for the early advantage.

Singles action was all Cougars, as the Gaels dropped three of the six matches.

Nash Vollenweider battled in the second set, but fell just short in a two-set loss at the No. 2 spot. Playing on court 3, junior Matthew Campana falls to 3-5 in the third spot for the Gaels after today’s loss.

Manuel De Luis Lamelas continued to play well, as his match went unfinished. Playing on court 5, the senior gained a 4-3 edge in the second set, before the match was called unfinished.

Jacob Lagman anchored the Gaels lineup with a tough match on court 6. Lagman dropped the first set, but came storming back in the second frame as his match went unfinished.

Saint Mary’s (6-13, 1-5 WCC) will travel back home, and host UC Santa Barbara on Sunday, April 9 at 1 p.m. The Gauchos are nationally-ranked in the latest ITA rankings at No. 49.
