Men's Tennis Stays Home for a Pair of Matches

Feb. 21, 2003

EUGENE - The No. 66 Oregon men's tennis team has a chance to extend its winning streak to six matches with a pair of home meetings with schools from California. The Ducks (5-1) play Pacific Saturday at 6:30 p.m., then will play UC Santa Barbara on Sunday at 3 p.m.

Senior Oded Teig has a chance to become Oregon's career leader in singles victories this weekend. Teig has 63 total singles wins to his credit, only one short of the all-time record held by Lee Kirner (1990-94). Teig has a record of 3-3 so far in dual action, playing five of the six matches at the No. 1 position.

Freshmen Thomas Bieri and Arron Spencer continue to play well for the Ducks, with both players undefeated in singles play in dual action. Spencer has played all six of his matches at the No. 5 position, while Bieri has split time between the No. 3 and No. 4 positions.

Sophomore Manuel Kost, ranked No. 64 nationally, played at the No. 1 position in singles for the first time against Boise State, winning in three sets. Kost was slowed earlier this season by an abdominal injury, but has since healed and is also undefeated on the season (4-0).

Sunday's match against the Gauchos will be special for Oregon's coaching staff. Both head coach Chris Russell and assistant coach Ross Duncan are graduates of UC Santa Barbara.
