EAGLE, Idaho – Harvey Shackleton’s three-set victory at No. 6 singles clinched the match for Boise State in a 5-2 victory over Whitman College Saturday night to hand coach Greg Patton his 800th career win. The Broncos claimed the doubles point 2-1, then collected four singles victories by Ryland McDermott, Stefan Lalovic, Shackleton and Wyatt DeMulling, respectively. The win is the first of the young season for the blue and orange who moved to 1-2 overall.

After the teams split the first two doubles matches the team point came down to court three. Wyatt DeMulling and Stefan Lalovic gave the Broncos the early lead taking No. 2 doubles 6-2 over Whitman’s duo of Gary Ho and Alex Hwang.

Whitman came back with a win on court one setting up the decisive match at No. 3 doubles. Maximilien Blancaneaux and Tim Heslin teamed up for the first time to face Whitman’s Rajul Chikkalingaiah and Chase Friedman. The Bronco tandem led most of the way, but the Whitman team did rally back to tie it up at 5-5.
