SAN DIEGO -
The San Diego State men's tennis team got into the win column Saturday with two 7-0 victories over UC Riverside and Northern Arizona at the La Jolla Tennis Club. The win improves the Aztecs' record to 2-1 on the season.
In the morning half of the doubleheader, SDSU won the doubles point thanks to a pair of 8-3 victories, one by Armando Carrascosa and Daniel Jung and the other by Markus Dickhardt and Dontia Haynes.
In singles play, all seven Aztecs notched wins. At number one singles, Benedikt Stronk defeated Justin Montgomery in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1. Chris Groh (6-2, 6-2) and Daniel Jung (6-1, 6-1) also won in two sets.

Similar to the morning match, the Aztecs swept all six singles matches in straight sets to win by the final margin of 7-0.
