With injuries claiming another Pio, the men continue to struggle to keep pace with another stronger and deeper Northwest Conference opponent. Lewis & Clark gets swept 9-0 by Whitworth.
The Pios had another tough day as their road weary legs came to life a little too late against a strong Whitworth squad. The injury bug continues to ravage the Pios’ lineup as international student, Wataru Nakamura, tried valiantly to play through an ankle injury, but ultimately had to call it quits after dropping his first set 6-1 to Cameron Williams. Other players didn’t fare so well either as a solid Whitworth team didn’t give up twenty games total the entire match. All three Pioneer doubles teams had trouble adjusting to the slower and grittier courts in Spokane. Playing for only the second time outside all year, the men had a hard time getting into rhythm. Junya Furakawa and Peter Ray both started their singles matches well and were on serve before Colin Zalewski and Michael Shelton pulled away to win 6-4, 6-1 and 6-3, 6-1 respectively.
The Pioneers stay in Spokane for the night before traveling to Walla Walla to take on the defending champion Missionaries at a rescheduled time of 1:00 pm.
