NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The University of Notre Dame men's tennis team improved to 5-0 this season with their 5-2 victory over #14 Texas A&M. The 13th ranked Irish posted their third consecutive victory over a top-15 team in the win.
"It was another great performance from our team," Callaghan Family Head Coach Ryan Sachire said. "Texas A&M was a final four team last year so we knew it was going to be a tough match. They have been a consistently strong program and that's something we're working to become. We're not a finished product but we been doing a great job competing as one unit this season.
"We look forward to our matchup tonight against IUPUI and another top-15 team in Illinois later this week," he concluded.
For the fifth straight match, the Irish won the doubles point to advance to singles competition with the lead.
The third court finished first, with Grayson Broadus and Matthew Gamble taking the set in six games, defeating Texas A&M's Barnaby Smith and Austin Abbrat 6-0.
The other two Irish pairs continued to battle, finishing at nearly the same time but it was Alex Lebedev and Axel Nefve who secured the point for the Irish, defeating their opponents on court two, 6-3.
