Utes At A Glance

Men’s tennis

The men’s tennis team probably wished the entire weekend was rained out after Saturday’s match against UNLV. The match was postponed until Saturday after weather conditions would not allow the team to play its first conference game on Friday.

It wasn’t exactly what the Utes were looking for in a first match.

Utah was not able to score a single point in the match as the Rebels swept the team 6-0.

Considering the horrible weather conditions, the doubles competition could not take place, which was the reason for only six total points in the match.

Four of the six matches went to a third set, but the Utes could not capitalize.

At the No. 1 singles position, Roeland Brateanu lost even after winning the first set, 6-7, 6-2, 6-4.

The only other match that was somewhat close was at the No. 3 singles position, where Miron Mann lost to Romain Massaro, 4 6, 6-3, 6-3.

Utah has only three matches left before the MWC Championships.

Up next, the Utes will play BYU at the Canyon Racquet Club in Salt Lake City on April 15.

Track

Once again, Amanda Feigt took home another first-place prize after winning both long jump and the triple jump. Feigt has already had an amazing freshman season, but she was not the only athlete for the Utes to do well at the Wildcat Invitational in Ogden over the weekend.

Nellie Hammons won the 800 meters while Elise Green Wood won the 5,000 m. The only other Ute competitor to take a first place prize was Katie Decker, who won the high jump.

On the men’s side, the team got solid performances out of Nephi Tyler and Jeff Davidson, who placed third and fifth in the 1,500 m and the steeplechase, respectively.

The team did well in the competition despite issues with the weather.

“Conditions were rough,” U coach Lisa Archer said. “It was freezing cold with terrible winds, but we competed well despite the harsh weather.”

The team will now head to Walnut, Calif., to compete in the Mt. SAC games over the weekend.
