Rebel Netters Take Two At Easley

Nov. 5, 2017

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV duo of Courtney Lock and Eric Samuelsson won the doubles title during the final day of action Sunday at the annual Larry Easley Memorial Classic held at the Fertitta Tennis Complex.

Lock and Samuelsson easily downed teammates Kevin Chau and Richard Solberg 8-1 for the crown. Samuelsson also won the singles consolation draw when his opponent, Lucas Taylor of NAU, retired trailing 5-0 in the first set.

Maxime Cressy of UCLA earned the main draw singles title with a 6-1, 6-0 win over San Diego State’s Arnaud Restifo.

“Overall it was a good three days of tough matches,” said UNLV head coach Owen Hambrook. “It’s been a while since we’ve had two doubles teams playing each other in the final at this event so it shows that hard work on the practice courts is paying off.”

UNLV is now off until the end of January when it begins dual-match competition in the ITA Kickoff Weekend.
