SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The No. 45 University of San Diego men's tennis team (15-7, 9-0 WCC) made history this afternoon at the Skip and Cindy Hogan Tennis Center shutting out the Gonzaga Bulldogs (9-13, 0-9 WCC) and ending the year with a perfect 9-0 conference record. Although the Toreros had already clinched the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament, today's victory clinched sole possession of the WCC Regular Season Championship.

The win, the Toreros' 7th in a row, marks the first year the squad has ever been undefeated in conference in program history.

Clarke Spinosa started off Senior Day on a high note, dominating Bulldogs' Jack Schoebel and Muzeen Ismath with partner Filip Vittek. The 53rd ranked pair are currently on a seven-match winning streak. Juniors Ciaran Fitzgerald and Andrew Raphaelson clinched the point, handedly taking down Joey Brandt and Vladimir Mijatovic in an 8-4 decision.

The Toreros took care of business as usual in singles, picking up the first set in five of the six matches.

Spinosa posted a 6-1, 6-0 win over Zags' Nick Kamisar in his final collegiate match at the Skip and Cindy Hogan Tennis Center.

"Coming out today and executing the last hurdle felt great," Spinosa said after the match. "To see the guys come out today and take care of business heading into WCC's feels phenomenal. Everyone is clicking and I can't wait to play WCC's with these guys next week. It has been an absolute honor to lead them throughout this season."

Raphaelson followed, knocking off Gonzaga's Muzeen Ismatch 6-1, 6-4. Fitzgerald also continued his winning ways, grabbing the victory over Jack Schoebel 6-0, 6-4 to secure the win.


 

 

The Toreros, locked in as the No. 1 seed, will return to action at the WCC Tournament on Friday, April 25th in the semifinals.
