No. 30 UW Welcomes Seattle U. For Friday Matinee
March 13, 2013
Washington enters Friday's match with a record of 11-6, having swept Hawai'i and Fresno State last weekend in Fresno. The Dawgs lost the doubles point to the Rainbow Warriors, before winning all six singles matches to come away victorious, 6-1. Against the host Bulldogs, UW won the doubles point and then three of four finished singles matches to earn its first true road victory in almost two months, 4-1.
Continuing his great play over the weekend was Kyle McMorrow who won both singles matches. He now has 15 wins on the season and 90 for his great career at Washington. McMorrow moved up to No. 16 in the ITA singles rankings this week and is now sixth all-time in wins at UW.
Marton Bots has also been playing well of late, although he fell out of the ITA rankings after being ranked last week. Bots is 6-5 playing at No. 2. Viktor Farkas (10-6) and Max Matnhou (9-6) are second and third on the team in wins. Each has played all over the Huskies' lineup.
Friday's match against the Seattle U. will be the 44th meeting all-time between the schools. Washington leads the all-time series 40-3 and won last year, 7-0. The Redhawks have struggles this season, compiling a 0-10 record and most recently were shut out 7-0 by Idaho, playing at the Nordstrom Tennis Center.
Following Friday's match with the Redhawks, the Dawgs will open Pac-12 play. Washington begins conference season on the road with a tough trip to Utah and No. 54 Arizona. The Dawgs take on Arizona on Friday, March 29, at 1:30 p.m., followed by Utah on Sunday, March 31, at 10:00 a.m.
