SPOKANE, Wash.--The Gonzaga University men's tennis team opened the 2018 dual season without dropping a point Saturday, picking up a pair of 7-0 wins against Whitman and Whitworth inside The Stevens Center in Spokane.

"Today was a great start to the season," said Gonzaga head coach Peter MacDonald. "The guys played well, and we're all happy to be underway now."

Match One: Gonzaga 7, Whitman 0

The Zags opened the year by sweeping Whitman Saturday morning. In doubles, Sam Feit and Matthew Perkins picked up a quick 6-1 win on court two. Whitman won the No. 1 doubles contest, but Zags Simón Homedes Dualde and Hunter Egger rallied for a 7-6 (3) tiebreak victory on court three to clinch the doubles point.

In singles play, the Zags posted five two-set wins with Emilio Moreno ceding just one game and Egger only two. After those two finished, Vincent Rettke clinched the dual with a 6-0, 7-5 win on court two. Feit followed up by putting away Whitman's Zach Hewlin atop the singles lineup, and the Zags confirmed the sweep with wins from Perkins and Kyle Everly on courts six and five, respectively.

Match Two: Gonzaga 7, Whitworth 0

The Bulldogs dominated the second match of the day, winning every single contest against Whitworth. All three GU doubles teams picked up perfect 6-0 wins, including Moreno and Bryan Husin, who played at No. 3 doubles after not facing Whitman.

The afternoon's singles matches went largely like the doubles as three Bulldogs - Homedes Dualde, Husin, and Moreno - posted 6-0, 6-0 victories against their Pirate foes. Egger, a freshman who joined the squad over Winter Break, posted the clinching point with a 6-3, 6-0 win on court two. Once again, Perkins and Everly won the final two matches that finished to confirm the Zags' second sweep of the day.

Gonzaga (2-0) returns to action Friday, Feb. 2, when they face Seattle U to continue a season-opening six-match homestand. That contest against the Redhawks will begin at 5:00 p.m. Live stats and video will again be available at
