Men's Tennis - Thu, Apr. 4, 2013

Georgetown College men's tennis team took a good step forward Wednesday afternoon on its home court. The Tigers picked up their third win of the spring season with a 6-3 victory over Centre College.

"We needed this," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "We have been dealt a few tough blows, but it is all in how we handle it and move forward."

Georgetown is currently without leader Benjamin Aspillaga. The senior suffered a knee injury during soccer season, but is still hopefully for a return at some point this spring.

Numbers has been a tricky situation at different points, which also makes it hard to practice. Throw on top of that the weather being uncooperative and it makes for a difficult season.

"Every team has its injuries and what not," Cunningham said. "We know we are a solid team. If we can just get rolling a bit, I think we can really be a force when tournament time rolls around again.

"That's where everyone sort of sat up and took notice of us this past year. I expect nothing less from these guys."

Tuesday the Tigers won two of the three doubles matches for a 2-1 early lead. The men then won the four of the six singles' matches.

Georgetown returns to the courts Friday in a big conference tilt with Cumberland University. Match is set for a 2 pm start.

NOTE: All of Georgetown's wins this spring have been a 6-3 score.
