Georgetown College men's tennis team took a tough loss to NCAA Division II Davis & Elkins. While the score appears rough, though, it was four tiebreaker matches that decided it all. The Senators walked away from the first of what could be many as the Tigers look to join DII ranks in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference with the 8-1 win.

"We take all four of the matches that went to tiebreakers and our men win 5-4, it is how crazy tennis can be sometimes," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham.

DE took a solid 3-0 lead after doubles, but needed a 9-8 win at the number one seed. Gustavo Echeverria and Ryne Least have been playing lights out for Georgetown the past several weeks, but could not break Charles Brunel and Simon Meriau down the stretch.

Someone's win streak was destined to be broken Friday afternoon at Georgetown College. The Tigers' women's tennis team, which is receiving votes, had a showdown with potential future Great Midwest Athletic Conference foe Davis & Elkins. The NCAA Division II school team came to the Lackey Tennis Center for the first time of what might start a long rivalry. The Senators are top in the G-MAC, but Georgetown edged them out 5-4 in this first meeting.

"I knew this was going to be a great match and everyone stepped up," said Tiger coach Jessica Cunningham. "That ended a 10-win streak for Davis & Elkins. Our young ladies are playing really well and it is fun when you get to see the team aspect of this game."

Tennis is so often seen as an individual sport, but GC (13-4) is on a six-match streak dating back to a road loss in late March to Campbellsville. After starting the spring season 0-2, the Tigers have gone 13-2, including three wins by one match.
