SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The Southern Utah men’s tennis team traveled to the Golden State Friday afternoon for their first Big Sky matchup of the season with the Sacramento State Hornets. The Hornets continued their hot start to 2017 as they beat the Thunderbirds 7-0 and moved to 3-1 on the season.

The match started with the doubles competition where the Hornets swept all three matches to earn the point over the Thunderbirds.

The singles competition played out in similar fashion as the Hornets took all six matches on their way to a sweep of the Thunderbirds. Freshman Guy Feigin lost his first singles match of the season as he was defeated by Kasparas Zemaitelis (7-6, 6-2).

This will end up being the only competition of the weekend for the Thunderbirds as Saturday’s match against Sonoma State has been canceled due to inclement weather.
