Lutes Lose to Occidental in Men's Tennis
LOS ANGELES - Occidental College swept past Pacific Lutheran, 9-0, in a non-conference men's tennis match played at the Occidental campus on Tuesday.
With the loss, the Lutes see their record drop to 7-5, including a 1-3 mark on their California spring break trip.

All of the singles matches went to Oxy in straight sets, though Mitch Yannello pushed his opponent before falling by a 7-5, 6-4 score at fourth singles.
Pacific Lutheran returns to action at 10 a.m. on Wednesday when they play at Biola, marking the end of their spring break trip.
