TUCSON- The Arizona men's tennis team defeated Northern Arizona 5-1 in a match which featured only singles matches Saturday at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center.

The Wildcats (1-0) and Lumberjacks (0-1) were making up their match that was rained out Friday.

Newcomer Andres Arango played in position No. 1 for the Wildcats against Chris Arena. Thematch was the last match to be started because the courts were still wet from the rain the day before. Arango had no problem in the first set winning 6-1, and then held off Arena in the second set 6-4 to win the match.

The only Wildcat to lose his match was sophomore Andres Carrasco, who fell to NAU's David Flodberg in three sets, 2-6, 7-6(4), 10-5.
