Pioneers Complete Play in Gopher Invite with Second Place Finish

Nov. 5, 2017

MINNEAPOLIS – The University of Denver men’s tennis team took to Minneapolis this weekend to round out its fall schedule. In the last tournament of the season, the Pioneer duo of Sean Huynh and Aaron Diemer picked up a second place finish in the Gold bracket.

Wyatt Lovera and Ignatius Castelino also competed in the Gold bracket, while Jorge Nunez partnered with Minnesota’s Kaleb Dobbs.

In the Maroon bracket, Jesse Ruder-Hook and Eric Morris formed a tandem, as Matt Summers and Pedro Fernandez Del Valle also got together.

Huynh and Diemer opened play with a two sets to one victory over Notre Dame’s Dawson and Somers. Meanwhile, Lovera and Castelino, as well as Nunez, came up on the wrong end of a 2-1 set score. However, all three doubles pairings were able to turn it around in the second round, picking up 3-0 triumphs.



Lovera and Castelino picked up one more win for Denver, as did Nunez and Dobbs, before the conclusion of the Gold bracket competition. The pairing of Huynh and Diemer went undefeated into the championship but would fall in three straight sets to Oregon, who took both brackets.

Despite falling in their first match of the Maroon bracket, Fernandez and Summers turned things around in the second round with a win.

The duet then lost again in round three, but chalked up an 11th-place finish in the tournament with a triumph over Wisconsin’s Colton and Krill.
