Last Dual Match for New Mexico:
The Lobos washed away the Islanders 7-0 at the Linda Estes Tennis Complex. The dual match started in favor of UNM as the Lobos won all three doubles matches. Phil Anderson and Jadon Phillips defeated Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s Tave/Westmoreland 8-6. Their teammates Ben Dunbar and Conor Berg defeated Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s Pavlov/Robinson, only giving up two games in the process, finishing the match 8-2. Carl Ho and James Hignett were the first to finish, defeating Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s Maingot/Jordao with a score of 8-1.
The Lobos certainly sent a message, as the Lobos paved their way into victory winning all six of their singles matches while at the same time not losing a set.
