The UTC men's tennis team dropped a 7-0 match at No. 22 North Carolina on Sunday. The Mocs were swept for the first time this season, dropping their overall record to 5-3. The Tar Heels improved to 6-2.

UNC won all 10 matches on the day, but the Mocs did push two singles contests to three sets. Senior Manuel Barroetavena (Buenos Aires, Argentina) dropped his first set 6-2 to No. 77 Brett Clark at No. 2. He fought back to win the second 7-5. He lost the super-breaker in the third 10-8 for his first loss of the spring.

He is still an impressive 7-1 in spring dual matches.

Senior Jackson Tresnan (Apopka, Fla.) also lost a tough three setter to Maik Ulrich at No. 5. Tresnan lost the first set (4-6) before winning the second (6-2). He lost the super-breaker in the third 10-6. It was also his first loss of the spring season.

The Mocs are back in action on Wednesday when they host a rescheduled match with Lee University. First serve is set for 2:30 p.m. on the UTC Tennis Courts. A link for live scoring is available on the men's tennis schedule page on GoMocs.com.
