USC Tennis; Men & Women both win at Texas

The USC men took a 6-1 win over the #13 ranked Longhorns at Austin, with Steve Johnson leading the way with a 6-0, 6-1 win at #1 singles. Again freshman Yannick Hanfmann clinched the match playing #4 singles after moving up from #5, this kid will probably be #1 next year if he sticks around. Roberto Quiroz, Ray Sarmiento and Daniel Nguyen all won their singles matches with only Emilio Gomez losing a tough 3 set match. The trojans are now 16-0 and match-up with Texas A&M on thursday at College Station at 6pm, I am wondering if my old mix doubles partner Madilyn will be there.

The Womens team also had an easy time in beating the #8 Longhorns 4-0 then giving in to two losses in 3 sets after the match had been decided, at Austin. Valeria Pulido playing at #6 started things off with a 6-2, 6-1 victory after the trojans took the doubles hands down, winning all 3 matches. Sabrina Santamaria playing at #3 singles came in with the next point with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Noel Scott, then the kicker came at #1 singles by Freshman Zoe Scandalis a 6-3, 6-4 winner over #24 Aeriel Ellis. The women are now 12-2 on the season and will play on the road at Uath next friday.
