GLENDALE, Ariz.-- Eventually it has to end, but for now, the 12th ranked Azusa Pacific men’s tennis is going to enjoy its unprecedented run of success, which continued with a 9-0 win over Sonoma State on Friday in Glendale, Ariz. The Cougars, whose 28 straight regular season wins sandwich the team’s 2013 NCCAA national championship, improved to 5-0, and saw sophomore Jan Meyer push his regular season record to 25-0.

The No. 7th ranked player in NCAA Division II posted a 6-2, 6-0 win over Matt Roberts at No. 1, while Frederik Wilkens posted his third straight victory with a 6-2, 6-3 defeat of Philip Holbrook at No. 2. Alan Leahy moved his record to 3-2 with a quick 6-1, 6-2 win over Daniel Holz at No. 3, and Pascal Engel beat Logan Liddell 6-1, 6-4 at No. 5.

Toma Aranguiz posted a 6-2, 6-1 victory against Vincent Paganetti at No. 6, and Gary Yam registered a win after Robert Henry retired midway through the second set at No. 4.

Azusa Pacific dominated doubles play, with Meyer and Engel sprinting to an 8-1 win over Roberts and Holbrook at No. 1, while WIlkens and Aranguiz recorded an 8-2 win against Liddell and Henry at No. 2. Leahy and Yam rounded out doubles with an 8-4 defeat of Hein and Manning.

Azusa Pacific will have a chance to notch its 29th consecutive regular season win on Saturday when it takes on Western New Mexico.
