AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn men’s tennis team opened its spring season by sweeping Jackson State in a triple-header with 4-0, 4-0 and 7-0 wins at home in the Yarbrough Tennis Center.

“It was great to be able to get a bunch of the guys into action, especially the new guys that came in this January and even a bunch of freshmen,” said Auburn head coach Bobby Reynolds. “They were here with us in the fall, but when you start playing dual matches in the spring, it’s totally different from the fall. Whether it’s singles or doubles action, it’s nice to get them accustomed to it. Obviously, the results were good. I thought the energy was good for everybody on and off the court.”

Auburn won the doubles point in the opening match with a 6-2 victory by Carles Sarrio and Diego Chavarria over Jackson State’s Vishu Prasad and Fritz Jacobs on court two. With only five active players, Jackson State forfeited the third court, allowing Auburn to take the doubles point with a victory in only one set.

On court one, Auburn’s Edward Nguyen and Lorenzo Rodriguez also won their set with a 7-5 victory over Jackson State’s Andre Alawi and Stylianos Gkontsaris.

In singles, Auburn clinched the win with victories from two of its January enrollees in their first matches at Auburn and a forfeit on court six. Lorenzo Rodriguez won the first match with a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Joan Sanson. Tad Maclean won the second match with a 6-1,6-3 victory over Stylianos Gkontsaris.

Auburn claimed the second match with three straight singles victories and a forfeit on court six. Tad Maclean was first to finish with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Fritz Jacobs on court three. Michael Durham followed Maclean’s victory with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Joan Sanson on court five. Lorenzo Rodriguez concluded the match with a 6-1, 7-5 win over Stylianos Gkontsaris on court two.

Auburn opened the third match by winning the doubles point thanks to a 6-0 victory by Tad Maclean and Carles Sarrio over Jackson State’s Andre Alawi and Stylianos Gkontsaris on court one. Auburn finished the final matches of the day with four straight wins, concluding the match at a mark of 7-0. Tad Maclean won the first match by a score of 6-2, 6-1 over Joan Sanson on court four. Edward Nguyen was the second to finish, picking up a 6-2, 6-2 win over Stylianos Gkontsaris on court one. Carles Sarrio won the following match over Fritz Jacobs by a score of 6-0, 6-2 on court two. Michael Durham defeated Vishu Prasad by a score of 6-0, 6-3 on court five for Auburn’s sixth point of the match. Olle Thestrup claimed the last victory of the day with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Andre Alawi on court three.

Auburn’s next match will be next Sunday against no. 7 Georgia Tech at 11 a.m. CT. This matchup will be a rematch from last season’s nail-biter that saw the then-ranked no. 24 Yellow Jackets take the win in the final set.
