The 1985-86 Torero netters enjoyed another successful year. The team was 19-10, all players posted winning records and there were many highlights. In the fall San Diego All-College Tourna– ment, freshman David Stewart defeated teammate Scott Patridge in the final, then teamed with Jim McNamee to defeat Patridge and Chris Smith to win the doubles title. At the ITCNRolex Regionals, held at UC Irvine, the doubles team of Patridge and Smith upset UCl's Man Son Hing and Downs before losing in the semi's to even– tual winners Miller and Gillette of Long Beach State. The best performance at the ITCA/ Volvo All-American at UCLA was recorded

by Dave Stewart. He defeated Jean LeClerg of Fresno St. , Vince Horcasitos of Long Beach and Grant Adams of ASU before losing to New Mexico's Jack Griffin. At the Fiesta Bowl Invitational Patridge upset #1 seed Mark Styslinger of SMU, to reach the semi's. The spring dual match season started slowly for the Toreros- at one point their record was 6-9. Although most of these losses were against top-ten teams, there were also a couple questionable performances. The second half of the season was a different story: the team won 13 straight dual matches; the first 11 were clinched in singles play. Best team wins were over BYU, UCSB, Oklahoma, Yale, Chapman, USIU and SDSU. In the San Diego lntercollegiates, the best USD result was recorded by the #2 doubles team of Patridge and Smith, who lost in the finals. The WCAC Championships were won by Pepperdine, with Santa Clara second and USD a close third. Although the Toreros competed without Stewart and Patridge, who represented USD at the Ojai lntercollegiates, #1 Jim McNamee lost to Pepperdine's Marty Laurendeau in the semifinals. Rick Matheson and Rob MacKay won the con– solation doubles title. Sophomore Curtis Dadian led the team in overall W/L %; he was 15-5 in singles and 15-7 in doubles. Other special award winners at the year-end banquet were: Patridge and Stewart, for best doubles team (9-0 at #1), Jim McNamee, for #1 player (his 3rd year) and Team Captain; Dave Stewart, for Most Inspirational; Rob MacKay, for Most Improved; and Chris Smith, for Sportsmanship.


On February 12-14 USO hosts the 16th Annual San Diego lntercollegiates, one of the west coast's best men's college tennis events. Sanctioned by the ITCA, and under the sponsorship of the San Diego Union, the tournament's format involves three separate elimination events for singles and three for doubles. Participating in '87 will be Pepperdine, BYU, UC Irvine, USO, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Long Beach State, USIU, San Diego Stale/ UC Santa Barbara, Chapman College, Cal State Bakersfield, Hawaii, UC San Diego and Redlands. On March 27-29 USO will host the 1st Annual Torero Tennis Classic, a team playoff tournament involving USO. Dartmouth, Nebraska, Iowa, Washington and Brown.



The 1987 University of San Diego Men's Tennis Team looks impressive-on paper the Toreros ap– pear to be fielding their best team in recent years. "This may be the most balanced team I've had," said 9th year Coach Ed Collins. " We will always put 6 very good players on the court." Is the '87 squad as good as the '82 team , which earned several ITCA top-20 rankings? " I think it could be," said Collins. " It has better depth, and that makes quite a difference." Five of the top 6 players are back. Only #5 Ale– jandro Ramos graduated from a team that was 19-10 in '86. Leading the returnees is Jim McNamee, a senior from Seattle, Wash., who held down the #1 position throughout last year. Also back are junior Scott Patridge (La Jolla, Calif.), #3 singles and #1 doubles in '86; junior Chris Smith (Victoria, B.C., Canada), #4 in '86; junior Curtis Dadian (Torrance, Calif.), last year's possessor of USD's best singles and doubles records; and sophomore David Stewart (Saratoga, Calif.), 19-8 at #2 singles and #1 doubles with Patridge.

Also returning from the '86 squad, and competing for spots in the top 6 are junior Mark Farren (San Jose, Calif.), and '86 redshirt transfer from West Valley JC, and junior Rob MacKay (Los Angeles, Calif.), '86 WCAC Consolation Doubles Champ. '87 newcomers and recruits are freshman Dan Mattera (Lomita, Calif.), ranked #11 in SoCal Boys 16's and #65 nationally in '85; freshman J.R. Ed– wards (Denver, Colorado), '86 Colorado State High School Champ, and junior Peter Choi (Flagstaff, Ariz.), a transfer from Northern Arizona University, where he played #5 singles. How the team will line up in singles is a question at the time of this writing . McNamee has played #1 the past 3 years, but could be pressed by #2 Stewart, #3 Patridge or #4 Smith. "All are capable," said Coach Collins. The doubles lineup has yet to be named, but most likely last year's team of Patridge and Stewart will return at #1. " They were 9-0 in dual matches," said Collins. " Smith and Dadian played well at #2. We'll spend the fall season determining our best combinations." The '87 Toreros will have better depth , and they'll need it to undertake another challenging schedule. In addition to NCAA Champ Stanford and Runner-up Pepperdine, the USO netters will take the court against UCLA, USC, Cal Berkeley, Cal Irvine, Long Beach State, Oklahoma, BYU and ASU.

UNIVERSITY PROFILE The University of San Diego is an independent, Catholic university located on a 170-acre mesa overlooking Mission Bay, San Diego Harbor, and the Pacific Ocean. The campus is named Alcala Park after the Spanish univer– sity town where St. Didacus (i.e., Diego) spent much of his time. Complementing its splendid natural setting is the University's location just 10 minutes from downtown San Diego - conveniently close to the major business, cultural, residential, and recreational areas, as well as the rail , bus and air terminals_ Founded in 1949, USO is presently experiencing record attendance. Undergraduate enrollment stands at 3300, graduate students bring the overall campus enrollment to 5300_ The University includes a College of Arts and Sciences, and Schools of Business Administration, Education, Nursing, and Law. Each is characterized by high academic standards, small classes, and excellent student-faculty relations. Though the majority of students come from the West Coast, every region of the United States is well-represented on campus. Students also attend USO from 24 foreign countries. Recreation and Athletic activities are expanding rapidly and include: sail– ing, crew, yoga, karate, surfing, modern dance, backpacking, and ballet.

In women's intercollegiate sports, USO fields programs in basketball, cross– country, crew, softball, swimming, tennis and volleyball.




TENNIS AT USD USO is proud of its men's tennis program. Twice the team won NCAA C,ivi– sion II titles_ In 1979 the team finished second and in 1980 the program moved up to Division I. This winning tradition was started by Andrew Rae, a native of Melbourne, Australia, who won NCAA Division II singles and doubles titles in '74 and '75_In 1978 USD's Rick Goldberg and Par Svensson won the NCAA II Doubles Championship. From 1980 through 1982 the netters were regularly ranked in the nation's top 20. In '80 and '81 the Toreros won Ojai team titles. During that time the team was led by Scott Lipton (San Jose, CA), Terry Ward (St. Louis, MO) and Peter Herrmann (San Diego). Lipton was an NCAA I All-American in 1980, Ward was the 1981 WCAC Singles Champ and Ojai Champ, and Herrmann holds USD's record for most wins, and was Ojai Champ in '82. The Toreros compete at the nation's highest level of intercollegiate play. In '87 the team will play dual matches with '86 NCAA Champ Stanford and Runner-up Pepperdine, along with UCLA, USC and Berkeley. USD annually participates in a number of the best college and open tourna– ments. In '87 the Toreros play in the UC Irvine/Marriott Tournament, the San Diego lntercollegiates, the Pacific Coast Doubles Chps. and the West Coast Athletic Conference Chps. (WCAC), of which USO is a member. The Fall semester tennis schedule is just as busy as the Spring. USO an– nually hosts the San Diego All-College Tournament.
