Men’s tennis is on a roller coaster, men’s golf has a freshman stud and softball gets a taste of victory in their conference.

Men’s tennis on the year has a record of 5-8, and are 4-4 in the Pacific Athletic Coast Conference. In one of their last matches against Colorado Mesa University, Dimitri Vukovic defeated Cody Freischlag in a singles match 7-5, 6-2. What made the win impressive is that Freischlag is a NCAA division two tennis player.

Next, the Roadrunners will face San Diego Mesa in a conference matchup.

Tennis player Joao Prado suffered an injury back in March 16 against New Mexico Military Institute. The injury happened during a doubles match in which ultimately, Prado along with Eleazar Vazquez-Celis had to forfeit. Prado is expected to be out for at least two weeks.

On the season, Prado is undefeated in singles matches with his record at 6-0.

Freshman golfer, Gauthier Adams has been hot lately. At Soboba Springs Country Club, Adams was one of three players in the whole tournament to score under par at 71, with the courses’ par being 72. The Roadrunners overall finished in second place.

To softball, the team ended their 9-game skid with a 9-1 victory against San Diego. It’s their first win in the conference as the Roadrunners’ record stands at 1-6. Overall they are 3-17.

Some players to watch for are hitter Malissa Nielsen and infielder Taylor Stone. Nielsen leads the team in hits with 16 and has a batting average of .314. Stone leads the team in RBIs with eight hits and has a batting average of .326. Both players have played all 20 games this season.
