Tennis Wraps Up Weekend Action

Tennis Wraps Up Weekend Action

BRISTOL, Tenn. – The King College men's and women's tennis teams wrapped up a weekend's worth of matches where they split time on the road and on the home courts. Both teams fell in each of their matches after fighting through unfavorable weather conditions at home against Mount Olive and taking to the road against the Limestone Saints.

The men's team split singles competition against Mount Olive with Jose Avilla, Pablo Vidal, and freshman Vitor Villar picking up wins on the front end of the lineup. The Trojans took all three doubles flights en route to a 6-3 match victory and King's second loss of the season. It was their first conference loss of the year.

The Tornado returned to the court on Sunday in a road match against the Limestone Saints. The men fell to the Saints, 7-2, for their second league loss of the year. Seth Hale earned the team's only singles match win in a 6-3, 6-1 decision over LC's Trent Jackson. In doubles play, Hale paired with Patrick Jones and defeated Abraham Lascari and Austin McAlister by an 8-2 count.

After the weekend concluded, King finds itself with a 10-3 overall record and 4-2 Conference Carolinas record.

On the women's side, the Lady Tornado battled through weather conditions but fell to the Mount Olive Trojans 5-0 at home. At Gaffney, S.C., the ladies dropped a 9-0 decision to the Saints, who entered the match 9-4 overall, 5-1 in conference play. With the loss, King's record drops to 2-12 overall and 0-7 in league action.

Both teams will travel to Due West, S.C. to face off against the Erskine Flying Fleet on Monday, April 2. Action will begin at 3:30 p.m.
