UTC Men's Tennis Falls To Austin Peay

Friday, February 8, 2013

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's tennis team dropped a 4-3 match to Austin Peay at The Baylor School this afternoon. The Mocs battled for nearly four hours before falling to the Governors in a closely contested bout.

UTC drops to 4-2 on the year while APSU improves to 1-2. The loss also snaps Chattanooga's four-match winning streak.

The Mocs jumped out quickly in doubles, taking an early lead in all three matches. Seniors Jackson Tresnan (Apopka, Fla.) andManuel Barroetavena (Buenos Aires, Argentina) were first off the court with an 8-2 win over Dimitar Ristovski and Iago Seffrin at No. 2. The Mocs duo improved to 4-0 as a pair this spring.

The Governors battled back to take the next two doubles matches and a 1-0 lead going into singles play. The doubles point is very important, because without it, a team must win four of six singles matches to claim the victory. UTC has won the doubles in all four wins this season.

The Governors ran out to a quick 3-0 lead with singles wins at No. 3 and No. 4. Barroetavena put the Mocs on the board with his three-set (6-4, 5-7, 6-4) win over Jasmin Ademovic at No. 2. Barroetavena remains undefeated in the spring at 5-0 and is a team-best 13-5 in singles matches this season.

APSU clinched the win when Sean Bailey scored a (7-6, 6-4) win over Roberto Vieira (Bedfordview, South Africa) at No. 1. Tresnan remained undefeated at 4-0 with his win at No. 6 while sophomore Pavels Grigorjevs (Riga, Latvia) scored a win at No. 5.

The Mocs next travel to Murray State on Sunday for a match against the Racers. Be sure to check back to GoMocs.com for a full recap.

While I don’t know that the famed Alabama football coach had this lesson in his wallet, chances are he might have if he’d read it. * * * THE BANK ACCOUNT & RULES Imagine ... (click for more)
