Senior Sebastian Bustamante proved to be a highlight for LMU men's tennis on Friday, defeating both his singles and doubles opponent as LMU fell to #2 Virginia, 6-1, at the LMU Tennis Center.
Bustamante began his day paired with Todd Volmari at the #1 doubles position, defeating their opponents Luca Corinteli and Harrison Richmond, 8-7 (7-4). The doubles match was the third to finish, as Virginia took the second and third courts to earn the doubles point.
Bustamante, a native of Guoyoquil, Ecuador, played at #5 singles where he recorded a hard-fought victory over Richmond, 5-7, 6-3, 6-1. While the match had already been decided by way of Virginia victories on the other five courts, both teams huddled around court five to cheer on Bustamante and Richmond.
The Lions will return to action on Saturday when they travel to San Diego at 2 pm.
