Texas A&M Too Much for Men's Tennis Team
Jan. 12, 2003
WAIKALOA, Hawaii - The Oregon men's tennis team struggled in its second day of play in Hawaii, losing all but two of its matches. Jason Menke and Arron Spencer won at the No. 3 doubles position for the second day in a row, dominating their opponents, 8-2.
'Oded Teig has been very competitive at the No. 1 singles spot, so that's been a real positive for us,' assistant coach Ross Duncan said. 'But the highlight of the day was definitely the doubles play of Jason Menke and Arron Spencer.'
Teig teamed with Sven Swinnen in doubles play at the No. 1 position, but lost their match, 8-2. In singles play, Teig narrowly lost to Ante Matijevic, 6-4, 7-6. Junaid Hossain picked up Oregon's only win in singles play, defeating Alex Hobson of Illinois, 6-3, 6-1.
The Ducks played without sophomore star Manuel Kost because of injury for the second day in a row, and his status for Monday's match with Wake Forest is still unsure. The Wake Forest match will be Oregon's final match in Hawaii, with the Ducks' next action coming in two weeks.
