COSTA MESA, Calif. – The Chapman University men's tennis team suffered a 9-0 loss to Whittier on Friday. The Panthers will look to rebound tomorrow at Redlands.
Whittier swept through five of the six singles matches. Freshman Len Kamemoto took the first set of the No. 5 match 6-1 but fell 7-5 to force the super tiebreak third set. In the race to 10 points, Kamemoto and Chris Palacio needed extra points to declare a winner. Palacio eventually took the advantage and pulled out the 1-6, 7-5, 1-0 (13-11) win to complete the sweep.
The Panthers host Redlands tomorrow as SCIAC play continues at the Seal Beach Tennis Center at 11:30 a.m.
