Court 3 - Daniel Nguyen vs. Sanam Singh

Court 4 - Ray Sarmiento vs. Jamere Jenkins

Court 5 - Emilio Gomez vs. Justin Shane

Court 6 - Peter Lucassen vs. Julen Uriguen

After a dominant performance in men's doubles to claim the first point, USC Built on their momentum with Emilion Gonzalez taking the 5's singles match 6-0, 6-3.

The Trojans won 5 of 6 1st singles sets and looked like they would roll, but UVA came storming back, forcing 3rd sets in 4 of the 6 singles matches.

#1 Ranked Steve Johnson defeated #5 Michael Shabaz 7-6, 6-4 giving the Trojans a 3-0 lead.

Unfortunately, UVA was storming back on Courts 2, 3, 4, and 6.

UVA won the matches on 2, 4, and 6, leaving all eyes on Junior Daniel Nguyen and Sanam Singh. After Nguyen won set 1, Singh dominated set 2 without Nguyen winning a game.

In set 3, Nguyen broke serve in game 6 when Singh made the questionable decision to hard-second serve and double fault giving Nguyen a 4-2 lead.

Nguyen then won the following game, taking a 5-2 lead.

Singh battled back, winning his own serve then breaking Nguyens.

Singh served down 5 - 4, and Nguyen made a couple of incredible shots (including a diving baseline return) to set up his Championship clinching volley.

It's the men's 3rd straight championship, and 19th overall.

Fight on to our men's tennis team! As always, it's a great day to be a Trojan!
