Men's Tennis Falls Short Against Delaware, 3-2 on Sunday

Newark, Del. (March 24, 2013)-- The Mount St. Mary's men's tennis team fell to Delaware on Sunday night, 3-2. The match was shortened due to the limited number of courts available for play that day. 

In the lone doubles match, the tandem of Taylor Place and Mike Zabetakis lost 6-1, 6-2 to the team of Nolan Gelman and Evan Andrews. 

The Mount received their only points from Mike Salomon at the No. 3 spot and freshman Austin Blake at the No. 4 spot. Salomon needed three sets to knock off Mike Furr; 3-6, 6-0, 10-2. Blake defeated Jason Derene in straight sets 6-3, 6-3. Delware took the other two matches in straight sets to clinch the victory.

The men return to action on Wednesday, March 27 when they travel to Lewisburg, Pa. to take on Bucknell. The match with the Bison begins at 3:00 PM.
