Oxy Falls in Opener to Nationally-Ranked Pomona-Pitzer

CLAREMONT — The Occidental men's tennis team's No. 1 doubles duo of Josh Dancu and Avery Howard led 6-3, but couldn't hang on and lost 9-7 in a close match to Jake Yasgoor and Jonathan Kim.

The Tigers fell 9-0 to No. 11 Pomona-Pitzer.

Dancu also gave Yasgoor a good run at No. 1 singles, particularly in the second set, before losing in a showdown that included some great shot-making and long rallies, 6-2, 7-5.

From the Coach: "Overall I was pleased with our energy and effort," Oxy coach Jordan Brown said. "I thought we had flashes of brilliance in doubles that we will build off at practice this week."

Oxy returns to action on Feb. 14, playing at Caltech.
