EVANSVILLE, Ind. – A dominant showing by the Tennessee Tech tennis team guided them to a second-straight victory, as the Golden Eagles took care of business with a 6-1 win at Southern Indiana Saturday afternoon in Evansville.

Tech's season-high in points featured five singles victory as well as capturing the doubles point on the way to a 2-0 Horizon League start. The first road conference clash of the campaign saw all five of TTU's solo triumphs wrap up in straight sets.

Alex Alvarez set the tone in the top spot for the Golden Eagles (2-8, 2-0 HL) with a 7-5, 7-5 victory over Mathys Bove for Alvarez's second solo nod of the spring. Paulo Ramos Martin notched his first singles win this season thanks to a 6-2, 6-4 triumph against Quinten Gillespie in the No. 3 position, while Davids Spaks collected a 6-3, 6-3 decision over Dylan Brown in the No. 4 battle and Lucas Bitzer claimed a 6-3, 6-1 win over Guy Finkelstein in the No. 5 duel.

Darek Kuczynski rounded out Tech's attack behind a 6-2, 6-1 victory against Blake Deaton in the No. 6 slot. The Tech junior out of Gdynia, Poland ties Spaks for the most singles nods this spring with three wins apiece. Bitzer's race to the finish line marked his second solo triumph this year.

Murilo Burckhardt was the only Golden Eagle upended during singles play with a 2-6, 6-4, 3-6 loss to Axel Sabourin in the No. 2 get-together.

Tech tripped up Southern Indiana (2-12, 0-3 HL) during doubles play by capturing both completed battles. The TTU tandem of Lucas Bitzer and Davids Spaks downed Quinten Gillespie and Dylan Brown in the No. 2 showdown, and Alex Alvarez and Darek Kuczynski blanked Guy Finkelstein and Blake Deaton 6-0 in the No. 3 meeting.

The top matchup pitting Paulo Ramos Martin and Murilo Burckhardt against Axel Sabourin and Mathys Bove did not finish.

With a 2-0 start to the purple and gold's conference campaign, TTU will set its sights on a third league match on Saturday, Apr. 13, welcoming Eastern Illinois to town. First serve at Tech Tennis Courts in Cookeville is slated for 10 a.m. CT and admission is free of charge.
