Men’s Tennis Dominates From Top to Bottom; Claim NWAC Championship

For the third consecutive year the Bellevue College Bulldogs men swept the NWAC tennis team championships yesterday at Spokane Falls Community College. The Bulldog men captured all nine individual champions in singles and doubles play with sophomore Oscar Cruz winning the men’s #1 singles.

Cruz had a very tight battle with Spokane sophomore Michael Manion in the men’s singles #1 final match of the day. Manion took a commanding lead in a 6-2 first set then lost the second 7-5. The third set saw a 7-6 score in favor of Cruz with Cruz winning the tie-breaker 7-5. Yev Kolomiyets took home #2 singles and had an easier time, winning 6-3, 6-1 over Cardale Herzog of Treasure Valley. Stefano Wirawan won 6-1, 6-1 over Matt Bake of Treasure Valley for the #3 singles title.

Earlier in the day, Cruz partnered with freshman teammate Stefano Wirawan to take the men’s #1 doubles 8-4 over Treasure Valley sophomore Scottie Ziegner and Bake 8-4 in pro set play.

The title is BC men’s ninth (fourth under coach Jason Chapman). Here is a link to all of the final results
