Sun Devil Outlook

In the two victories last weekend, ASU held opponents scoreless and was highlighted by

senior Max McKennon, who won both doubles contests alongside freshman Bor Artnak. McKennon also took down both singles opponents in straight sets to contribute one point to each match’s total.   

Murphy Cassone won his singles contest 6-1, 6-2 against NAU and secured the team’s doubles point with the 6-2 victory alongside freshman Martin Vergara against Wichita State.
