The 15th-ranked University of Redlands men's tennis team squared off against No. 13 Pomona-Pitzer Colleges in a Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) match on Friday in Claremont. After facing a slight deficit in doubles, the Bulldogs never recovered en route to the 3-6 defeat.
The Sagehens jumped out to a 2-0 lead by earning triumphs at Nos. 1 and 3 doubles.
After Cummins was forced to retire from his singles match at No. 2, junior Patrick Lipscomb (Irvine, CA) posted an impressive 6-2, 6-3 performance at the No. 1 spot.
The teams traded points at Nos. 4 and 5, with Bulldog freshman Parker Wilson (Carlsbad, CA) coming out victorious by scores of 6-1, 6-3.
However, the Sagehens prevailed in both of the remaining matches, leading to the three-point loss for the Maroon and Gray.
Redlands (7-10, 1-2 SCIAC) looks to immediately rebound as it heads to No. 20 Cal Lutheran University on Saturday for a 10 a.m. showdown against the Kingsmen.
