Maggi Returns From Ranked Road Trip 2-0

Jan. 27, 2007

Fresno, Calif. - Playing its second match against a nationally-ranked opponent in as many days, Loyola Marymount men's tennis fell to 61st-ranked Nebraska 6-1. The Lions (1-3) and Cornhuskers (1-1) battled in Fresno, Calif., where both teams also took on 45th-ranked Fresno State this weekend.

Freshman Renzo Maggi was the highlight of the weekend, as he returns to Los Angeles 2-0 after topping both the Bulldogs' and the Cornhuskers' No. 6 player. Saturday it was Nebraska's Van Impe that fell victim to Maggi in a three set battle.

Nico Terrien and Jacek Twarowski topped Nebraska in doubles, posting an 8-4 win at No. 1 doubles.

Twarowski (No. 3) and Nikola Petrov (No. 2) each went on to push Nebraska to three sets in their singles matches, but fell short in the end.

LMU returns to the Los Angeles area, but things won't get any easier. The Lions will take on defending national champion Pepperdine in Malibu Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. The match will mark the Lions third straight contest against a nationally-ranked opponent.
