Three Bulldogs Through to Round of 16 in Boise
Oct. 6, 2017
SPOKANE, Wash.--Three individuals and one doubles pair from the Gonzaga men's tennis team remain in main bracket contention after the second day of action at the Dar Walters Fall Classic in Boise, Idaho.
Junior Ruadhan O'Sullivan and sophomores Sam Feit and Vincent Rettke each picked up a pair of singles wins Friday, advancing to the Round of 16. O'Sullivan advanced after a pair of two-set victories - over opponents from Idaho State and Montana, respectively - while Feit and Rettke each survived three-set matches in their first match of the day. Feit downed Idaho State's Peter Trhac 3-6, 7-5, 1-0 (4), while Rettke beat Seattle U's Colton Weeldreyer 6-7, 6-3, 1-0 (9). Both Zag sophomores needed just two sets to win their afternoon contests.
Two more Bulldogs reached the Round of 32 before getting eliminated from main bracket contention. Sophomore Kyle Everly picked up his second win of the tournament Friday morning, downing Abilene Christian's Bradley Gleason 6-2, 6-4. Freshman Matthew Perkins also advanced to the Round of 32 after doubling up his Eastern Washington foe 6-3, 6-3. Both Everly and Perkins fell to individuals from Idaho Friday afternoon in the Round of 32.
Halfway through the second tournament of the season, both O'Sullivan and Rettke lead the team with 5-1 singles records. Feit is at 3-1, and Everly also has three wins.
In doubles play, Everly and Rettke combined for the Zags' sole pairs win Friday, besting a duo from Eastern Washington 8-5. They'll face Idaho's Mark Kovacs and Carlos Longhi Neto - the tournament's third-seeded pair - next. That match will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7.
