PORTLAND, Ore- The Lewis & Clark men’s tennis team had a positive but rough go against a quality Division I opponent Saturday at the Lewis & Clark Tennis Dome. Seattle University swept the Pioneers 9-0 in their first match of the season.
Seattle University seemed to be just a step ahead of the Pioneers all day long. Trying to match the big serves and powerful ground strokes of its Division I foe, the Pioneers just couldn’t match up. Cole Pfeiffer had a tough introduction to collegiate tennis by losing his first match 6-0, 6-0. All three doubles matches were highly competitive even though the scores did not reflect it. Fans were treated to some high intensity tennis with jaw dropping shot making from both teams.
The Pioneers play their next match against George Fox on Friday, Feb. 12 in the tennis dome.
