PASADENA, Calif. (Apr. 18, 2015) – Sophomore Morgan Lebby (Laguna Beach, Calif. / Laguna Beach) fought his way to an extended superbreaker defeat as the Caltech men's tennis team took on No. 31 Cal Lutheran University in the Beavers' regular season finale on Saturday.
The Beavers finish conference play 0-7 (5-11 overall) and will be the #8 seed in the SCIAC Championships, hosted by Caltech, while CLU has earned the #4 seed at 4-3 (9-11).
Caltech took a combined 11 games as CLU swept doubles play and the Kingsmen quickly clinched the match in singles. Junior Rushikesh Joshi (Sunnyvale, Calif. / Archbishop Mitty) continued his recent hot streak with a solid showing at #2 (6-4, 6-2), while Lebby went ahead by a set (6-3) at #4 before his opponent rallied to take a tight second, 6-4, and the superbreaker, 11-9.
Head Coach Mandy Gamble will lead the Beavers as they participate in the Ojai Valley Tournament this weekend.
