LUBBOCK — No. 29 Texas Tech rolled to a 6-1 victory against UTSA on Friday afternoon at the McLeod Tennis Center.

The Roadrunners (7-9) picked up their lone point when Gabriel Wanderley retired due to illness in the second frame at No. 5 singles. Freshman David Kelleher, who won the opening panel, picked up the victory.

The Red Raiders (9-6) won the other five singles tilts, four in straight sets.

Sophomore Yannick Junger pushed Gonzalo Escobar, the nation's 59th-ranked singles player, to a deciding third frame, but Escobar rallied to win the final two sets.

UTSA will conclude its stay in Lubbock with a 1 p.m. match on Saturday against New Mexico State.
