USC defeats OU in tennis final

ATHENS, Ga. — Ray Sarmiento and Yannick Hanfmann won their singles matches in straight sets and USC earned its 21st NCAA championship with a 4-2 victory over Oklahoma on Tuesday night.

The top-seeded Trojans (32-3) clinched their fifth national title in six years under coach Peter Smith when Max de Vroome held serve with a backhand volley to beat Andrew Harris in No. 4 singles.

Second-seeded Oklahoma (27-5) led 2-0 after Dane Webb won No. 3 singles, but the Sooners couldn’t hold their momentum. Hanfmann beat Guillermo Alcorta 7-5, 6-2 in No. 1 singles, and Sarmiento held off Axel Alvarez in 6-4, 7-6 in No. 2 before Eric Johnson won No. 5 singles for a 3-2 Trojans lead.
