The No. 10-ranked Stanford men's tennis team opened its dual-match season by blanking visiting Sacramento State, 7-0, on Tuesday afternoon at Taube Family Tennis Stadium.
Stanford (1-0) captured the doubles point to take a 1-0 lead before sweeping all six singles matches. Three Cardinal freshmen picked up victories in their first career dual match at the Nos. 3-5 positions of the lineup.
Leading 1-0, John Morrissey cruised to a 6-1, 6-3 victory on court one. Morrissey is Stanford's lone nationally ranked singles player, checking in at No. 39.
After Robert Stineman secured a 6-3, 6-1 win at the No. 6 spot, freshman Nolan Paige provided the clincher with a 6-3, 6-1 triumph at the No. 3 position.
Stanford is back in action this weekend, making an appearance in the Sherwood Cup at Thousand Oaks.
Stanford junior Carly Wopat has been selected a First Team All-American by Volleyball Magazine, the publication announced Tuesday. She is one of four players from the Pac-12 Conference to earn first-team accolades.
Wopat also earned first-team honors from the publication in 2011. She is also a two-time AVCA All-American, earning honorable mention in 2011 and first-team status in 2012.
Wopat, a middle blocker from Santa Barbara, was an All-Pac-12 pick and finished the season in the top-10 in the conference in hitting percentage (.399) and blocks per set (1.45).
