San Diego, Calif. - The University of San Diego was upset this afternoon by Virginia Commonwealth 5-1. The 33rd-ranked Toreros were undefeated at the USD West Tennis Courts and riding on an eight-game winning streak dating back to February 13. However, the No. 35 Rams came to Alcalá Park with an upset in mind and they did not leave San Diego without accomplishing their goal.

Due to impending rain, the singles was played first and Robbie Blair put the home team on the board first, with his 6-2, 6-4 victory over Daniel Lohff at the No. 4 spot. Virginia Commonwealth bounced back as Arnaud Lecloerec, ranked No. 13 in the country, upset 7th-ranked Pierrick Ysern on Court 1. Sergi Arumi followed with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Mirza Koristovic at No. 3 and Marton Ott won at the No. 4 position over Nic Beuque to give the Rams a 3-1 lead. Virginia Commonwealth would clinch the match after Sebastian Ripoll outlated Thomas Liversage 6-2, 1-6, 6-3 on Court 5. Damien Lcombe defeated Oscar Plotnik 6-3, 7-6 to account for the final tally. The doubles matches were not played.

San Diego falls to 8-4 on the year, while Virginia Commonwealth improves to 10-5. The Toreros will look to bounce back on Monday when they travel to Hawai'I and take on the University of Hawai'i.
