"Today was definitely a day I thought we went through the motions a little bit," remarked head coach Nils Schyllander said in a media release. "It was an important match in the sense that we got finals week out of our life and still a comfortable 7-0 win."
This was the second time this season the Ducks have overcome the Vikings (2-13) as the two squads met earlier this year on Jan. 20th.
Oregon (13-1) swept the doubles to earn the first point in the dual. The Ducks were led by their No. 1 doubles team of junior Jeff Mullen and sophomore Robin Cambier who defeated PSU's Roman Margoulis and Mitch Somach, 8-2. The Mullen/Cambier combination is now 22-1 on the year dating back to the start of the season.
Oregon also swept the singles en route to the 7-0 victory. Junior Aaron Clissold defeated the Viking's Abinav Mishra, 6-3, 6-1 at No. 4 singles. Senior Sho Higuchi and Douglas Mayeda each contributed a singles point by taking down Alex Marx, 6-2, 6-4 and Nick Fracchia, 6-2, 6-0, respectively.
Up next for the Ducks will is the University of Portland.
"Tomorrow we face the strongest Portland team they have fielded in recent memory. They will be fired up and we must match and surpass their energy and do what we've been doing all season long," said coach Schyllander. "We will face a stiff challenge."
