Tech closed out a five-game road swing last Sunday afternoon at Utah. The Red Raiders did receive a strong doubles performance from Franco Ribero and Ilgiz Valiev as the duo combined for a 6-2 doubles victory. Isaac Arevalo and Reed Collier had a match point on doubles court one that would have secured the doubles point, but the duo ultimately fell 7-5. In singles action, the Red Raiders were swept by the Utes who improved to a perfect 8-0 on the young season. Singles highlights included Collier winning an epic 10-8 tiebreaker over Bruno Caula and Dimitrios Azoidis winning his opening set against Blando. Collier was down 4-2 in the second set when the match was called, while Azoidis was up 3-0 in the decisive third set before action was concluded.


The Red Raiders hit the road again next week for a pair of neutral site matches in Dallas. Tech will clash with No. 12 Texas A&M on Tuesday before facing LSU on Thursday.
