Release Date: 03/15/2013
“For the first outdoor match of the season, I was very pleased,” said head coach Nils Schyllander. “We fought our tails off, and it was a really solid battle. My hat goes off to Corpus Christi. They were very well coached and one of the hardest fighting teams I’ve ever seen. They really made us earn every single point out there.”
Oregon won its 14th consecutive doubles point Friday as the No. 1 and 3 duos defeated their opponents before the match on Court 2 was called early. Robin Cambier and Jeff Mullen beat Gergo Weidinger and Peter Nagy 8-6 on Court 1, while Aaron Clissold and Daniel Sardu topped Matt Westmoreland and Andrew Maingot 8-2 in the third spot.
