Mocs Score 5-2 SoCon Win Over The Citadel

Story by Adam Stephens

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men’s tennis team won its first conference match of the season against The Citadel at the Champions Club this afternoon.  After losing the doubles point the men’s tennis team flipped the switch and took five straight in singles for the 5-2 victory. 

“Any SoCon win in any of our sports at Chattanooga is an awesome feeling, and our guys deserved it today,” head coach Carlos Garcia said.

UTC was unable to win in doubles, dropping two of its three matches.  The doubles team of Pavels Grigorjevs and Gino Delavalle defeated their opponents at No.2 but were alone in that triumph.

Chattanooga turned up the heat for singles competition winning the first five matches off the court.  Sophomore John Peacey stuck first with a (6-3, 6-1) win at No. 5, evening the playing field and tying the match at 1-1.

Sophomores Luke Saunders and Gino Delavalle and freshman Derrick Brown followed right behind, winning their singles matches and earning the victory for Chattanooga.

Chattanooga is back at it tomorrow on the UTC Tennis Courts against Alabama State.  First serve is set for Noon and a link for live scoring is available on the men’s tennis schedule page on GoMocs.com.
