PENSACOLA, Fla. – In a battle between one of the top teams in Division I and one of the premier teams in Division II, the No. 15 ranked Ole Miss men’s tennis team downed No. 7 West Florida 4-0 here Saturday at the Ralph Skeeter Tennis Complex. With the win, the Rebels conclude their spring break trip to Florida and improve to 7-4 overall.
In singles, Adrian Forberg Skogeng dominated Mike Lue 6-2, 6-1 at No. 6 to make it 2-0. Lutjen defeated Andrey Pozhidaev 6-4, 6-1 at No. 3 singles, and then this week’s SEC Freshman of the Week, Scholtz finished off Kevin Ducros 6-1, 6-4 at No. 1 singles to clinch the victory.
Ole Miss led in the three remaining matches when play was stopped.
“West Florida is one of the top teams in their division, so this was a good win,” head coach Billy Chadwick said. “They challenged us at some positions. Now we turn our attention to a tough road match at South Carolina.”
The Rebels will head to Columbia March 23 to face the Gamecocks at 12 p.m. CT before returning home to host Florida March 25 at 1 p.m.
