LA MIRADA, Calif. - Pacific Lutheran closed its 2013 Spring Break tour of Southern California with a 7-2 non-conference men's tennis victory over host Biola on Wednesday.
The Lutes finished the trip with two wins and three losses and are now 8-5 for the season. Biola is 2-12 after taking the defeat.
PLU opened with a sweep of the double matches and carried the momentum to the victory.
Jason Bower and Taylor Dickey took an 8-6 win in the featured doubles contest, and Luke Olson and Sam Angel followed by beating their opponents by an 8-0 count. The Yannello cousins, Mitch and Jake, won at third doubles, 8-3.
"This was a great way to end our spring break trip. The guys responded well and bounced back from a couple tough losses, and I'm very proud of the way they came together, rallied and ended the break with a strong win," PLU head coach Rocky Poulin said.
"Luke Olson and the Yannello cousins put together some great victories in singles, and we came out of doubles up 3-0 with great momentum going into singles play. We feel strong coming back home and continuing conference play and the home stretch to postseason."
