Mocs Winning Streak Snapped With 6-1 Loss to UNC Greensboro
Sophomores Chris Smith and Roberto Vieira
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's tennis team saw its five-match winning streak snapped with a 6-1 loss to UNC Greensboro today.  The Mocs won the doubles point, but were swept in singles action on the UTC Tennis Courts today.

All three doubles contests took an extra game to decide, beginning with sophomore William Disterdick (Hixson, Tenn.) and freshman Trent Cobb's (Melbourne, Australia) 9-7 loss at No. 2.  The loss snapped a three-match run for the Mocs duo. 

Sophomores Stephen Crofford (Franklin, Tenn.) and Jackson Tresnan (Apopka, Fla.) were down 6-2 in their battle at No. 3 with UNCG's Chanon Varapongsittikul and Ahmet Sarioglu.  They stormed back to even the doubles competition with a 9-7 win. 

Sophomores Chris Smith and Roberto Vieira clinched the point with a 9-7 win at No. 1, improving to a team-high 8-3.  It was the sixth consecutive doubles point for UTC. 

Unfortunately for Chattanooga, it could not keep the momentum going.  The Spartans took all six singles in straight sets to improve to 8-3 overall and 3-0 in Southern Conference action.  With the loss, UTC drops to 6-7 and 1-1 in the SoCon. 

Chattanooga will be back in action on Friday, March 18 when it hosts The Citadel.  Match time is set for 1:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) on the UTC Tennis Courts.
