UTSA welcomes No. 61 Oregon for midweek matchup

Last Time Out
The Roadrunners put another one in the win column last Friday with a 6-1 victory over Dartmouth, providing UTSA’s fourth victory in the last five matches. UTSA’s burn through the Big Green’s doubles pairs was nothing short of dominant, with a race to the finish for the Roadrunners. Clinching the doubles point and moving their partnered record to 5-0, Alan Magadan and Miguel Alonso each also garnered singles wins. Alonso captured his team-best 10th win of the year. Danijal Muminovic follows with an 8-6 record and Tiago Torres is up to a 7-6 record. While Alonso/Magadan top doubles win percentage, the most consistent victors are Jackson Ross and Garrett Skelly with a team-leading 8-3.

On the Slate this Week
Meeting for the third time in the series, the Ducks are 61st under 18th-year head coach Nils Schyllander – only the second coach in program history. Marking the Roadrunners’ sixth ranked opponent of the year, this will be the first trip outside the Pacific Time Zone for the Ducks since the first week of February. UO has dropped the last two outings, both against Pac-12 foes, after snapping a three-game skid on a March 7 win at Washington. First-court player and 2023 All-Pac-12 second-teamer Quinn Vandecasteele is 7-5 and ranked No. 124. Likely headed for a date with Alonso on court six, UO’s top singles record belongs to Lenn Luemkemann at 10-5. In addition, sophomores Vlad Breazu and Matthew Burton each have recorded eight wins this year. In doubles action, Burton and Vandecasteele are a team-best 7-5 with a No. 33 national ranking.

The Series with Oregon
This will be the third meeting between these programs, but the first in 14 years, as Coach Schyllander last brought Oregon to San Antonio on March 5, 2010. The Ducks pulled out a 5-2 win that day, matching the prior season’s effort during the 2009 campaign in Eugene – leaving the Ducks up 2-0 in the series.

Up Next
The Roadrunners will host the Rice Owls at the UTSA Tennis Center in a doubleheader with the women’s team on April 6 at 1 p.m.
