Men’s tennis downs USU and Weber

The U tennis team continued its hot start to 2006, as the Utes knocked off in-state rivals Weber State and Utah State on Friday afternoon.

Opening against the Wildcats, the Utes won every match except for No. 1 singles, as the U cruised to a 6-1 victory. After Ute Tomasz Grzyb fell to Sascha Kiehne in three sets, the Utes jumped all over the ‘Cats, not dropping another set in singles and dominating doubles.

In the afternoon contest against the Aggies, the Utes swept through USU with a dominating 7-0 performance. Taking over in No. 1 singles, Zach Ganger pounded Aggie Johannes Zelle 6-3, 6-0. Ganger would later add a win in No. 1 doubles along with Nick Coutts. The Utes only dropped one set to the Aggies in singles play, while also sweeping through doubles.

Up next for the Ute men is a trip to the University of Denver on Friday.
