BYU men's tennis is second seed at WCC tournament
PROVO, Utah – BYU men’s tennis finished second in the West Coast Conference regular-season race and heads into the league tournament Apr. 27-28 as the No. 2 seed behind No. 44 San Diego.
“The final standings and results reflect the depth of the WCC teams on the men’s side,” BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. “No team went through the regular season unscathed with the No. 10 team in the league, Saint Mary’s, taking the No. 1 team, San Diego, down to the wire. We were one match point away from tying San Diego for the regular-season title. Going into the WCC tournament as the No. 2 seed is a great accomplishment and something our guys can be proud of.”
The Cougars closed the regular season with a 18-6, 7-2 record. BYU's only two league losses were to San Diego and Santa Clara. The top six seeds compete in the tournament.
