UC Davis men’s tennis wins; women’s streak ends

UC Davis men’s tennis defeated Air Force, 4-3, in their last home tournament of the year on March 5. Heading into the weekend, the Aggies were recovering from their eighth loss of the year against Hawai’i on March 1.

After losing two of three doubles matches, UC Davis was able to rally its way to victory by taking four of the six singles matches. Senior Kyle Miller led the Aggies with a singles victory against the Falcon’s Jack McCullers in two sets, 6-2, 7-6.

UC Davis improved to 13-8 overall and 2-1 in conference play as it travels down south to UC Santa Barbara to face the lowly Gauchos, who are 7-12 this season. The Gauchos, however, are undefeated in conference play, 2-0.

The Aggies hope to finish the regular season strong as they head into the last two tournaments before the Big West tournament on April 24.

The UC Davis women’s tennis team saw its six-game winning streak snapped by the streaking UC Irvine Anteaters, 4-1. The Aggies now have a 11-7 overall record and a 3-3 conference record.

The Aggies won two of the three doubles matches as the third match was left unfinished. Seniors Megan Heneghan and Melissa Kobayakawa recorded their 12th consecutive doubles win.

Currently in fifth place in the Big West, the UC Davis women’s tennis team hopes to regain its momentum against Cal State Northridge (10-6) on April 8 at the Marya Welch Tennis Center in Davis, Calif.
