By From page B8 | March 25, 2014

The UC Davis men’s tennis team did not drop a set Monday afternoon en route to its fifth straight victory, a 7-0 shutout of visiting Eastern Washington at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.

With the win the Aggies (10-6) improved to 5-0 on their current homestand, which had included three shutouts. Monday’s match was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but moved up because of the threat of rain.

UCD opened with a pair of dominating doubles wins as Alec Adamson and Adam Levie teamed for an 8-3 victory at No. 1 and Brett Bacharach and Adam Luba posted an 8-1 triumph at No. 3.

The Aggies’ roll continued in singles place, where Adamson, James Wade and Bacharach each earned wins that featured a 6-0 set. Levie had to work for his 7-5, 6-2 victory and freshman Bryce McKelvie completed the sweep with a 6-1, 6-3 win at No. 5.

McKelvie has now won nine straight matches to improve to 13-4 on the year.

UCD is back on the court Tuesday for a 9 a.m. matchup against Hawaii-Hilo.
