Cal Lutheran drops home opener to NAIA's Westmont

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- For the first time this Spring, Cal Lutheran competed inside the Poulson Tennis Center. Against a tough NAIA program in Westmont the Kingsmen fell 6-3 in their home opener.

Three strong individual match victories from Moises Cardenas, Sean Handley and Connor Treacy followed a competitive series of doubles matches.

The first win of the day was posted at No. 3 singles. Treacy was tested by John Bertram in the first set, but swept past his opposition in the second to win 6-4, 6-0. Handley controlled things on court No. 5 again Travis Kimsey, winning 6-2, 6-2, to pull the team score closer. The longest battle of the day came on the No. 1 singles court where Cardenas and Rodrigo Schaefer fought it out for more than two hours with the Kingsmen player earning a 6-4, 7-5 victory in his home debut.

All three doubles matches were exciting, but it was the visiting Warriors who took an early lead, shutting out the Violet and Gold teams. Cardenas and Fergus Scott challenged Tim Goranson and Bertram before the Westmont duo stole the set with a score of 9-8 at No. 2.

On the first and third courts for doubles competition, both Treacy and Alex Nichols and Ian Slater and Jesse Knight fell by 8-6 margins.
