Fresno Pacific's NCAA Division II No. 13-ranked men's tennis team rallied for its first win of the season, sweeping the singles while beating host Holy Names 2-1.
The Sunbirds were down 2-1 after doubles, but new No. 1 singles player Michael Tymkiw beat Tracy Beblie 6-4, 6-3 to clinch the victory.
"Michael played well at No. 1 today, which was big for him," coach Neil Castro said. "It is very different playing in the top spot versus the four or five. You don't get any days off at the top of the lineup."
Kyle Rowe, Leonardo Urquidi and Brendan Aguilar also all won in straight sets for Fresno Pacific (1-1, 1-0 PacWest).
"Today showed that we still need a lot of work in doubles," Castro said. "Holy Names is a scrappy team, but we have the talent to come away with wins at all three doubles spots every match.
"The singles were much different for us. The way we played in the singles matches is the way we need to play all our matches."
Fresno Pacific's lone doubles win came from the nationally No. 2-ranked Rowe and Thomas Gely.
Holy Names (0-1) is No. 9 and the Sunbirds No. 3 in the D-II West Regional rankings of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
