PARKLAND – Playing on the outdoor campus courts for the first time this season, the Pacific Lutheran men's tennis team clinched its third consecutive Northwest Conference victory with an 8-1 win over Linfield on a breezy Saturday afternoon.

"It was a fun day being on campus with family and friends watching," PLU head coach Rocky Poulin said. "It's what I remember as being a Lute tennis player from back in my days as a student-athlete."

Taking advantage of the sunny forecast, the Lutes improved to 5-11 overall and 4-6 in conference play with the win. Linfield fell to 0-12 overall and 0-10 in the NWC. The Lutes remain at home next weekend, closing out the regular season schedule with matches against George Fox (Friday at 3:30 p.m.) and Lewis & Clark (Saturday at 1 p.m.) at Sprinker Recreation Center.

Pacific Lutheran swept the doubles round of competition. Spencer Herron and Jake Yannello teamed to defeat Lukas Kleinman and Kelsey Rosborough (8-1); Neal Berg and Sam Angel teamed to take down Micah Roos and Tim Hawkins (8-3), and James Okubo and Sam Stadter defeated Alec Wisthoff and Nick Konen (8-0).

The singles round went almost as smoothly for the Lutes. Stadter defeated Roos 6-3, 6-0 at the top of the ladder, and Angel knocked off Rosborough 6-3, 6-2 in the No. 2 spot. Kleinman picked up Linfield's lone win of the day against Okubo, picking up a 6-3, 4-6, 1-0 (10-3) win. Jeremy Marsh shut out Hawkins 6-0, 6-0, Hayden McCartney defeated Wisthoff 6-4, 6-1 and Brandon Bulaclac wrapped the match with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Konen.
