Cowboys Defeat Furman; Advance at Blue Gray Classic
MONTGOMERY, Alabama – Oklahoma State’s men’s tennis team advanced to the second round of the Blue Gray Classic with a 4-1 defeat of Furman in Montgomery, Ala., on Thursday.
The Cowboys picked up the doubles point with a solid output in all three matches. At No. 1, sophomore Oleksandr Nedovyesov and junior Nathan Byrnes dominated their way to an 8-0 win over Furman’s Chris Rhyne and Anrei Chvetsov.
Senior Ivan Puchkarov and sophomore Dmytro Petrov won, 8-5, at No. 2, and at No. 3 it was OSU’s freshman duo of Mark Kepler and Anton Bobytskyi winning, 8-3.
In singles play, Nedovyesov and Puchkarov picked up quick wins at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, to put the Pokes up, 3-0. After freshman Mark Kepler fell to the Paladins’ Jordan Walters, 6-3, 6-4, OSU’s Dmytro Petrov put the match away with a hard-fought win over Chris Motes at No. 3. Petrov trailed after the first set, but came storming back to win the next two and secure the win for the Cowboys.
“I thought our guys played extremely well to pick up the doubles point,” said Cowboy head coach James Wadley. “Furman gave us a tough run in singles play, but I was proud of the way our guys fought. Petrov did a great job of battling back after trailing early.”
