    Chicago, Ill.- In their first and only dual match of the fall, the UIC men's tennis team stormed into Chicago State University and took eight of nine matches to defeat the Cougars, 6-1, on Wednesday afternoon.

    The Flames were led by sophomore Paul Glendenning, who scored crisp victories in his No. 2 singles match against Dejan Avramovic, 6-2, 6-1, and his No. 1 doubles match with partner Karol Zarucki against the Cougars' tandem of Danai Samuriwo and Amit Wadhwani, 8-2.

    UIC swept the three doubles matches to earn the doubles point while taking five of six singles contests. The lone blemish resulted from Samuriwo's victory against Zarucki at No. 1 singles in a back-and-forth match, 5-7, 7-6 (7-3), 10-5.

    Sophomore Pat Zufan teamed with newcomer Sean Kreymborg to defeat Avramovic and Rajneesh Ali, 8-1, while junior Ken Howrey and sophomore Yevgen Ryeznik each scored strong singles wins.

    The Flames are back in action on Thursday, October 23 for the ITA Regional Championships in Lansing, Mich.
