OMAHA, Neb. -- South Dakota State (15-6) swept doubles en route to a 5-2 win over Omaha (6-13) Wednesday afternoon.

"Today was a solid day for us," head coach Michael Engdahl said. "Our doubles was great and we played well enough to take care of business in singles."

Jackrabbit duos of Parker Lawley/Andrea Boglic, Mateus Moreira/Gary Notkin, and Lucas Pereira/Henrique Pereira all won their matchups 8-3, 8-5, and 8-4, respectively.

SDSU dropped the top two single's matches, but rebounded to win the remaining four.

Curcija and L. Pereira won 6-1, 6-2 and 6-1, 6-3 respectively, while Moreira won 7-6 (6-3), 6-3. Gary Notkin also won 4-6, 7-5, 10-8.

"It is the first match of a long weekend, so it feels good to get the win," Engdahl said. "We need to lock ourselves in mentally to play at a high level Friday."

The Jacks return to action this weekend with a pair of Summit League matches in Denver against DU and IUPUI Friday and Sunday, respectively.
