USC Men's and Women's Tennis keep up Winning ways.

The Mens team after knocking off #3 Texas, follows that with a 5-2 victory of Louisville to go 12-2 on the season. After sweeping the doubles, #1 player Steve Johnson led the Trojans through singles to capture their 12 win on the year. His 6-1, 6-2 victory over #12 ranked Austen Childs is yet another impressive win for Steve who might be well on his way to successful pro career, which is every young tennis players dream. Freshman Emilo Gomez was the next Trojan netter on the board with a 6-2, 7-6 win over Alejandro Calligari, then came Danny Nguyens 6-4, 6-4 clincher over Simon Childs to win the match. The trojans were playing without Raymond Sariemento (wrist ingury) so we using players 5,6 and seven, which is why the Cards got the #5 and #6 singles matches.
