MEN'S TENNIS: Utah State dominated the first day of action against Lewis-Clark State, 7-0, Friday at the Boise Racquet and Swim Club in Boise, Idaho.

USU now owns a 3-2 season record thus far.

"Good team, they played pretty well," said head coach Christian Wright. "It was good to have match to play before we play Boise State, and a good way to get used to the elevation."

Utah State won the doubles point with victories at all three positions.

Juniors Jakob Asplund and Bryan Marchant defeated the Warriors' Ivan Krijanto and Benjamin Robert, 8-2, at the No. 1 spot. Freshman Sven Poslusny and senior Amit Maharaj continued their doubles winning streak with a victory at the No. 2 position over LCSC's Cesar Uauy and Oliver Sindayigaya, 8-6, bringing the partners to a combined 5-1 doubles record with a current four-match winning streak. To complete the doubles sweep, junior Nikita Ryashchenko and sophomore Nate Ballam defeated the Warriors' Jeff Lowdnes and Zhia Hwa Chong, 8-0, at the No. 3 spot.

USU continued to dominate the competition, sweeping all six points in singles competition. At the No. 1 position, Asplund defeated LCSC's Oliver Sindayigaya, 6-1, 6-4, bringing his singles record to 4-2 at the No. 1 spot. At the No. 2 position, Poslusny battled through three sets to overcome the Warriors' Benjamin Robert, 6-3, 3-6, 10-6. Poslusny holds the highest Aggie singles record of 5-2 after Friday's match.
