DAVIDSON (February 16, 2019) – The North Carolina A&T men’s tennis team lost to Davidson College 4-3 at the Knobloch Indoor Tennis Center. The Aggies fall to 0-7 on the season while the Wildcats improved to 6-2. Despite the loss, this was the best performance thus far this season for N.C. A&T.

“We played a very good team today, and we where a doubles point away from victory,” said N.C. A&T coach William Crutchfield. “A very solid outing for the Aggies.”

Freshman Vasil Ivanov won his second singles match of the season at No. 2 singles. He started off strong taking the first set 6-3. His opponent fought back by taking the second set 6-4. The third set was decided by a tiebreaker set after the two were tied at 6 apiece. Ivanov sealed the match with a 7-5 win.

Sophomore Jorge Goenaga snagged his first singles win of the season with a win over Camden Mazzoni at No. 3 singles. Faulkenbury played steady and kept the pressure on his opponent leading to a 6-4, 6-4 win.

At No. 6 singles, freshman Nolan Martino grabbed his first career collegiate win as he defeated Matthew Rose. The first set was a close battle with Martino coming out on top 7-5. He then turned up his intensity level to put away his opponent 6-2 for the win.

Nicolas Arduh and Ivanov teamed up at No. 1 doubles to secure the Aggies second doubles win of the season. They defeated Axel Fries and Yash Parikh 6-4 for N.C. A&T’s only win at doubles on the day.

Davidson took the doubles points by winning at No. 2 and 3 doubles.

The Aggies will return to action Friday, Feb. 22 as they travel to Farmville, Va., to face Longwood at 3 p.m.
