Men's Tennis Stopped by #8 Columbus State
April 5, 2013
The Georgia Gwinnett men’s tennis team finally suffered its first defeat of the season Friday, falling to eighth-ranked NCAA Division II opponent Columbus State University in a five-hour match at the GGC Tennis Facility by a 6-3 score.
In a back and forth affair, the Grizzlies earned wins at first and sixth singles and third doubles.
Georgia Gwinnett falls to 10-1 on its inaugural season as the Cougars improved to 14-2.
“This match could have gone either way,” said GGC head coach Chase Hodges. “Both teams really battled out there today and I was proud of the effort.”
Including Friday, The Grizzlies have still dropped just 13 out of 99 points on the season.
Hodges’ squad looks to bounce back with a 2 p.m. match Tuesday against another Division II club, Young Harris College, at the GGC Tennis Facility.
