Monday, February 25, 2013

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's tennis team hosts a pair of matches this week. The Mocs welcome Lee University on Tuesday, Feb. 26, and open Southern Conference play against the College of Charleston on Saturday, March 2.

First serve against the Flames is set for 2:30 p.m. (E.S.T.) on Tuesday on the UTC Tennis Courts. This is a makeup match from a weather delay earlier in the year. Chattanooga hosts the Cougars on Saturday at 1:00 p.m., also on the UTC Tennis Courts.

Chattanooga has won three straight over the Flames and is trying to snap a six-match skid to the Cougars. UTC has not defeated the College of Charleston since a 4-3 road win on March 10, 2008.

Lee is searching for its first win of the season, following losses to Bethel (0-5) and No. 2 Auburn-Montgomery. The Cougars are 2-3 overall with wins over Winthrop (5-2) and Presbyterian (4-3). They have losses to Virginia Tech (1-6), Charlotte (3-4) and Georgia State (3-4).

The Mocs are 5-3 overall after Sunday's 7-0 loss at No. 22 North Carolina. SeniorManuel Barroetavena (Buenos Aires, Argentina) is currently 7-1 in spring action and has seen time in each of the top three singles slots. He also has a 4-2 record in doubles, teaming with fellow seniorJackson Tresnan (Apopka, Fla.). Tresnan is 6-1 in spring singles, playing the No. 4-6 positions.

Head coachCarlos Garcia is in his 12th season at UTC, posting a 123-140 overall record. UTC has increased its win total in each of the last three seasons. The 14-9 mark in 2012 was the best record for the program since 2007.

The Mocs also set a program record with a 3.46 team grade-point-average in the fall. All nine members of the team made the Athletics Director's Honor Roll with a 3.0+ semester g.p.a., while seven made the Dean's List.
