Francis Sargeant and Shane Monroe led the way as the BYU men’s tennis team beat the University of New Orleans on Saturday while competing well against highly ranked Tulane on Monday.

Sargeant was impressive in the Cougars’ match against New Orleans. Sargeant had yet to play in the No. 1 singles position this season due to an injury but showed why he has earned that spot when he took the court on Saturday. He beat Timo Kranz 3-6, 7-5, 6-0 as BYU went on to defeat UNO 5-2.

On Monday the Cougars faced off against No. 62 Tulane. Shane Monroe played in the No. 2 singles position and beat Alex Van Cott in straight sets 7-2, and 6-1. The Cougars played hard but fell 3-4.

BYU returns home to host Air Force on Saturday, Jan. 24, at 5:30 p.m. in the Indoor Tennis Facilities.
