The 10th-ranked Stanford men's tennis team defeated Sacramento State 7-0 Tuesday at Taube Family Tennis Stadium in the season opener for both teams.
Stanford 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.
John Morrissey cruised to a 6-1, 6-3 victory on court one. Morrissey is Stanford's lone nationally ranked singles player, at No. 39.
After Robert Stineman secured a 6-3, 6-1 win at the No. 6 spot, Nolan Paige provided the clincher with a 6-3, 6-1 triumph at No. 3.
Cal dropped just two sets all day. In all, the Bears produced a 25-0 singles record at the invitational, which included No. 54 Hawaii -- the tournament host -- as well as Hawaii Pacific.
Former Cal running back Isi Sofele has committed to playing in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday at The Home Depot Center in Carson. The game is scheduled to be televised live on ESPN2.
Stanford junior middle blocker Carly Wopat has been selected a first-team All-American by Volleyball Magazine. Wopat also earned first-team honors from the publication in 2011.
