Men's Tennis Handles UC-Riverside 7-0

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - The Quakers came out strong in their first outdoor match of the season, sweeping host UC-Riverside 7-0 to remain perfect in 2010.

Penn, ranked no. 68 in the country by the ITA, opened double play by sweeping all three matches. No. 1 and No. 3 doubles won by matching 8-5 scores, while the No. 2 doubles team of freshmen Jason Magnes and Mark Milbrandt won by a 9-7 margin.

Singles was a similar story for the Red and Blue. Sophomore Jason Lin kept his perfect singles mark intact, giving up just one point in a 6-0, 6-1 victory. Milbrandt also won handily at No., 5, 6-2, 6-4. At No. 4, Magnes moved to 7-0 in singles with his 6-4, 6-1 win.

Sophomore Phil Law won in two sets, 6-4, 6-2 at No. 2, while Brazdil and senior Jeff Karsh each needed three sets to take victory, in No. 1 and No. 6 respectively.

Head Coach Nik DeVore was pleased with his team's performance "The first match on spring break is always tough because we haven't played or practice outdoors at all up to this point," said DeVore. "I was impressed with how comfortable everyone was, and with the determination. We expected a battle, but we jumped out to an early lead and never looked back."

The Quakers improve to 8-0 with the victory and return to action tomorrow when they take on Loyola Marymount at 1:30 p.m. pacific standard time.
