TYLER, Texas -- Colby College's Scott Altmeyer had the biggest win of his collegiate career, beating the 11th-ranked player in the country in the Mules' tough 5-4 loss to 30th-ranked University of Texas at Tyler on Saturday.
Altmeyer took a 6-2, 6-2 win over Arthur Fagundes at first singles. Altmeyer and doubles partner Sumukh Pathi both went unbeaten in singles and doubles during the team's trip to Texas.
“Scott has been playing some great tennis recently, he has been working everyday at practice on upping his pace on his serve and groundstrokes and it is starting to become more consistent," Colby head coach Jason Cohen said. "He did a great job today staying composed and I know he drew a lot of confidence from his comeback yesterday to finish out that match.”
Pathi (pictured) also won in straight sets by 6-3, 6-4 scores over Daniel Rodriguez at second singles.
Jeremy Mendoza had the other singles win for the Mules (6-2 overall) at the fifth spot.
Altmeyer and Pathi cruised to an 8-2 win over Fagundes and Gabriel Hidalgo at first doubles, but Texas-Tyler won the other two doubles matches.
