WACO, Texas—The UT Arlington men’s tennis team fell 7-0 to the No. 18 Baylor Bears Saturday at Hurd Tennis Center.
The 18th-ranked Bears started the match strong winning doubles at the No. 3 and No. 2 position, forcing No. 1 doubles to remain unfinished.
Soren Goritzka was the lone Maverick who came close to winning a set during singles competition. The senior fell 6-3, 7-3 at the No. 2 position to Tony Lupieri.
The Bears are 5-1 overall while the Mavericks drop to 1-2 on the season.
“Playing at their home is always tough,” UT Arlington coach Diego Benitez said. “We didn’t play our best tennis.
“We need to regroup and be ready for Texas.”
UT Arlington is back in action Thursday, Feb. 21 when the team travels to Austin to take on Texas at 1:30 p.m.
