ST. GEORGE, Utah - Southern Utah University men's tennis dropped a match to Weber State, 7-0, on Thursday morning. The competition was held at the Green Valley Resort & Spa in St. George because of snow and cold temperatures in Cedar City.

The Wildcats swept all three doubles matches with the closest contest come at No. 1 doubles where Southern Utah's Troy Benson and Bryton Wells fell to WSU's team of Oliver Good and Caio Poitena, 8-2.

The Thunderbirds also fell in straight sets in each of their singles matches. Benson took the most games for the T-Birds in those matches in a 6-1, 6-3 loss at No. 1 to Weber State's Jakub Gewert.

Southern Utah will return to action tomorrow with its home finale in Cedar City against Portland State. The match is scheduled to be played at the Thunderbird tennis courts with action beginning at 1:00 p.m.
