McKelvie Posts Perfect 4-0 Record in Singles

UC Davis junior Bryce McKelvie (San Jose, Calif.) posted a perfect 4-0 record in singles to capture Big West Men’s Tennis Athlete of the Week honors.

Hsu Leads CSUN to First Dual Win of 2016

Junior Mickey Hsu (Taiwan) helped CSUN pick up a pair of key points in her team’s first win of 2016, earning Big West Women’s Tennis Athlete of the Week honors. 

With partner Kristen Poei at No. 1 doubles, the duo breezed to a, 6-2, victory over the Loyola Marymount pairing of Jessica Perez and Anna Romeka, helping stake the Matadors to a 1-0 lead as they captured the doubles point.

Hsu then engaged in a marathon battle at the top spot on the singles ladder with Perez, ultimately winning a pair of tiebreakers by scores of 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5).  Her win tied the match up at three points apiece, and CSUN went on to win, 4-3.
