Gauchos Win 13 of 14 Singles Matches On Day Two of UCSB Classic

Santa Barbara, Calif- The second day of the UCSB Classic unfolded in the same manner as the first, with the Gauchos dominating the field, as they captured 13 of 14 singles matches on the day. As a result of this success the final round in all three flights of play (A B & C) will be all Gaucho affairs.

 Due to rain delays the singles finals have been postponed until Monday, 2 p.m. at the Recreation Center courts. In the "A" flight, redshirt freshman Axel Bouillin will square off against junior transfer Mbonisi Ndimande. In the "B" flight junior Alex Johnson will take on freshman Ziad Sultan and in the "C" flight junior Max Glenn will face freshman Mons Knudtzon.
The only blemish on an otherwise perfect day for the UCSB men was dropping a tight match in the finals of the "A" flight doubles by a score of 8-6. Overall the Gauchos went 9-3 in doubles play and 13-1 in singles competition against LMU, Westmont and UC San Diego throughout the tournament.
