SAN ANTONIO (April 18, 2014) -- The Our Lady of the Lake University men's tennis team narrowly lost to NCAA DIII Texas Lutheran University last Friday by the score of 4-5.

OLLU's Bernardo Pegas (FR/Bage, RS, Brazil) and Jacob Galaviz (FR/El Paso, Texas) were also able to beat TLU's Kyle Thompson and Greg Nelson 8-6. Ellis also won his singles match against Dizdarevic 7-6 (7-3)/ 6-2, and Pegas beat Thompson 6-1/6-3.
