UCSB 6, UC IRVINE 5

The Gauchos (30-13, 21-8 in Big West) fell behind 3-0 early on but were able to cut the deficit to 3-2 with a two-run single by Zach Rodriguez.

PEPPERDINE 4, UCSB 1
Senior Joseph Guillin was able to rally back after dropping the first set in his No. 1 singles match, but it wasn’t enough as the Gauchos fell to 28th-ranked Pepperdine in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at USC.
The Gauchos (10-6) split the first two doubles matches against the Waves, as Kai Brady and Guillin won 6-2 over Daneil De Jonge and Pierto Fellin at No. 3. Victor Krustev and Joseph Rotheram lost 6-2 at No. 2, clinching the point for Pepperdine (16-6).
“That is the best doubles at No. 3 that we’ve had this year,” said head coach Marty Davis. “Those two (Brady and Guillin) are practically undefeated at No. 3 this year, so that was very impressive.”
The Brady-Guillin duo finishes the year with a 7-1 record.
In singles, Pepperdine made it 2-0 when Fellin topped Brady at No. 6, 6-2, 7-5. It was 3-0 after Zeitvogel topped Pablo Masjuan at No. 4, 6-3, 7-6 (4). Guillin then got UCSB on the board with his 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 win at No. 1 over the 119th-ranked Adrian Oetzbach. It was the third consecutive match that he won after losing the first set.
The match ended when Summaria came back to topple Rotheram at No. 5, 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-0. At that point the other matches were pulled off the courts.
“Joey (Rotheram) played extraordinary tennis for an hour and a half,” Davis said. “But the guy he was playing (Summaria) was playing No. 1 for them the last time we played and he just got stronger and stronger.”
The loss to the Waves ended a four-match winning streak for the Gauchos, including their sixth consecutive Big West Tournament championship.

The UCSB women’s tennis team was unable to extend its longest winning streak in the last 25 years with their loss to Stanford Friday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
