Pfeifer Wins On Senior Day

Written by: NMSU Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Senior Jeff Pfeifer won his final regular season match at the NMSU Tennis Center for the New Mexico State men's tennis team, which won its third straight match with a 4-0 victory over Texas-Arlington Sunday morning.

Both teams played the first to four team points because of the high winds in the area. NMSU improves to 6-4 on the year while the Mavericks fall to 3-7.

Assistant coach Carlos Vargas believed this weekend, where his team won all three matches, got the Aggies back on track.

"Everybody on the team was playing better this weekend," Vargas said. "Playing three matches in three days is really tough and today worried me because of the wind and I didn't want our guys to have a let down after two big wins. Our main focus today was to go after them."

Pfeifer won his No. 2 doubles match with freshman Jim Brouleau, 8-5 to help the Aggies sweep all three doubles matches.

Then in singles play Brouleau, junior Roman Stoisavljevic and sophomore Alejandro de Mucha quickly picked up victories to give NMSU the four points needed for Sunday's victory.

New Mexico State now has two weekends off. The Aggies next play on March 22 against Oklahoma State, who is a Top 25 team in the nation, in Stillwater, Okla.
