Eugene, Ca - The Dons won their first match against a Pac-10 opponent in recent history. The University of Oregon Ducks have had a recent tennis presence, making a NCAA appearance and being ranked in the top 40 in the last few years. But the Dons fought hard and started strong by capturing the doubles point; winning at positions #1 and #3.
The Dons won at positions #2-#4 in singles. Korbi Kramer showed his booming groundstrokes and lethal backhand, winning in straight sets. Fernando Rodriguez kept his perfect record indoors alive, rallying from behind to dominate 6-2 in the third. Sophomore Falko Huettenberger served big and closed the net, winning the quickest of the all the Dons. The Dons look to build off this momentous win to grind through the rest of the season.
