Dominant would be an understatement for the last two evenings at the Greenwood Tennis Center.
The Cowboys won in a sweep against Tulsa, 7-0. They’ve combined to beat their first two opponents, Wichita State and Tulsa, by a combined score of 13-1.
Coach Jay Udwadia was proud of his guys for finishing hard against Tulsa, which has ranked players of its own to deal with.
Udwadia said he saw a difference in his team’s play in two straight nights, even though the Cowboys dominated both matches.
“Both teams were a little bit nervous in that first match, you know it’d been nine, 10 months before we played a college match, so, today, I think it helped us a lot and that was Tulsa’s first match and I think what we saw was we were a little bit more comfortable,” Udwadia said. “In general, this was a cleaner match against a great opponent.”
No. 49 Matej Vocel had a tough matchup against No. 67 Kody Pearson from Tulsa, but he came through in a hard-fought (6-4), (6-4) victory in singles.
No. 101 Emile Hudd was that force once again for the Cowboys, winning in singles, (7-6) and (6-3).
Freshman Matisse Bobichon from Lyon, France picked up his first collegiate win.
“For a first match, that’s kind of good,” Bobichon said. “I was nervous, excited, but I think in the first half, I was pretty good.”
