Marquette Opens Weekend With 7-0 Win Over Bradley
Feb. 26, 2011
The Marquette University men's tennis team (6-5) opened a weekend homestand Saturday night with a 7-0 victory over Bradley (7-3) in non-conference action at Helfaer Tennis Stadium.
The Golden Eagles are now 5-0 at home this season.
Marquette's claimed the team victory rather quickly with three-quick singles wins. Junior Jonathan Schwerin didn't drop a game in his win at No. 6 and sophomore Jose Carlos Guitierrez Crowley followed that up with a 6-2, 6-1 decision over the Braves' Hamish Weerasinghe at No. 1. Freshman Dan Mamalat secured the team's fourth point with a straight-set victory at No. 2 singles over Juan Cuadrado.
The Golden Eagles opened the match by sweeping all three doubles matchups to claim the early 1-0 advantage. After posting a win at the No. 1 position, MU's Logon Collins and Drake Kakar secured the point with an 8-3 decision over Bradley's Ashton Kalhorn and Devon Manning at the No. 3 spot.
Marquette wraps up its weekend homestand Sunday morning at 10 a.m. when the squad welcomes Eastern Illinois to Helfaer Tennis Stadium.
