SEATTLE, Wash. -- Washington's men's tennis team, ranked 40th in the nation, upset No. 29 Virginia Tech, 4-3, to claim its first Great Northwest Shoot Out championship since its induction three years ago. Washington defeated two ranked teams during the tournament and raised its record to 4-2.

Junior Eric Drew clinched the championship with his 6-7, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Virginia Tech's Marek Pfeil in No. 2 singles action. Drew used a powerful serve to wear down Pfeil and thrusted his fist into the air after Pfeil could not return his serve on match point. Drew raised his season record to 9-5 with the win.

The Huskies won the important doubles point to start the day. The No. 2 doubles team of Nick Quatrochi and Mark Woolley defeated Virginia Tech's Mark Tepes and Pfeil, 8-6, while the No. 3 doubles duo of Andy Posavac and Sasha Rampazzo blanked Rahul Basole and Lance Mills, 8-0.

Washington takes next weekend off before hosting the Oregon Ducks at home, Feb. 27 at 4 p.m.
