Lions Take Fourth Straight With 6-1 Win Over Boston College

March 10, 2006

Los Angeles, Calif. - Loyola Marymount men's tennis claimed its fourth straight win Friday at the LMU Tennis Center with a 6-1 win over Boston College (4-12). The Lions (5-6) already had two big wins on the week in Georgia State and Yale, but remained focus for their third match of the week Friday.

"I was pretty happy with the way our guys took care of business today," LMU Head Coach Nik DeVore said. "I was concerned that we might comeout a little flat after our big wins against Georgia State and Yale. The guys didn't let up and played pretty focused tennis today."

Among the highlights of the day was Mike Wojnarowicz and Linas Cicenas's 8-0 win at the No. 1 doubles spot.

"Mike and Linas are playing great at No. 1 doubles," DeVore said. "They couldn't miss a ball today in their win. Their intensity and confidence were at a very high level."

All of LMU's singles victories came in straight sets.

"I was especially happy with Mike Wojnarowicz," DeVore said. "He was struggling to find his form early in the season, but now he is striking the ball with a lot of confidence."

LMU will compete for the fifth time this week tomorrow when the Lions host Montana State at the LMU Tennis Center. The teams are scheduled to begin doubles play at 3:00 p.m.
