SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The Santa Clara University men's tennis program closed action at the SCU Bronco Classic today with a victory in the Flight B main doubles draw. Senior Ben Hidalgo and sophomore Bobby Rasmussen paired together for a tiebreaker win over Loyola Marymount's Linas Cicenas and Carlos Malet.

The Bronco tandem advanced to the championship match with a semifinal victory over another Lion duo, Mike Chan and Ashton Politanoff.

Bronco senior Eric Kochanski also won a title, the Flight B singles consolation, with his straight-set win over Pacific's Tyler Black.
