Georgetown College men's tennis takes second win in as many days. The Tigers traveled to Cumberland University and won 5-4 in the Mid-South Conference tilt.
GC took a 2-1 lead in doubles after Chris Bartlett and Tristan Nosek defeated Dylan Nelson and Jose Ortega Vela 8-6. Ryan Abell and Daniel Orr won by default.
Ryan Simms and Austin Colliver battled hard before falling 8-4 in their doubles match at the one position.
Georgetown College men traveled to NCAA Division II Cedarville University and came away victorious Friday evening.
The Tigers took two of the three matches in doubles play and then battled it out in the singles competition with Tristan Nosek sealing the win in a three-set thriller. He beat Ryan Shomo 6-4, 6-7, 6-4 as GC won 5-4.
"They all fought really hard tonight," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "This was an exciting win for these guys that have been working so hard all season."
Austin Colliver and Ryan Simms got the winning going with an 8-4 victory in doubles one. Chris Bartlett and Nosek teamed up at the two doubles for an 8-6 win over Shomo and Joel Clark.
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.
It was a day for seniors to shine in tennis. Georgetown College men's and women's teams were hosting Cumberland University with a lot at stake.
On the women's side, both teams are receiving votes and are looking to better themselves for postseason seeding. On the men's side, GC has had some rough breaks and was looking to challenge the No. 7 team in the nation. In the end it was the Tiger women taking the 5-4 victory and the men dropping 7-2.
"It was a great day," said Tiger coach Jessica Cunningham. "Our women showed a lot of heart and our men proved to be who we knew they could be all along."
Typically the idea for spring sports is to travel south when the season opens and the winter months may linger a bit in Kentucky. However, Wednesday's winter storm Pax also went south, altering several Georgetown College athletic teams' schedules.
The men's and women's teams were making a sweep to Waleska, Ga. – just outside of Atlanta – and Cleveland, Tenn. to play Reinhardt and Lee University in some final tune-ups before the first Mid-South Conference matches.
However, Pax swept through and has force both sets of matches to be canceled.
