Men's Netters Face Tough Test in Furman

ATLANTA (Mar. 21) – Georgia Tech’s men’s tennis team looks to regain some momentum before getting into the heart of its Atlantic Coast Conference schedule with a non-conference match against Furman Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.

“Furman will be a tough match,” head coach Kenny Thorne said. “They beat us early in the fall, but we are playing better now that we are in midseason form.”

The Yellow Jackets, ranked 70th in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll, have a record of 5-7 overall, while the Paladins are 13-8 overall.

Tech has won three of its last four matches after a 2-6 start, recording wins over NC State, Richmond and Maryland. The Jackets only loss in those four matches was to defending national champion Georgia.

The Jackets are getting solid play from freshman Roger Anderson (Pietermaritzburg, South Africa), who enters the week with a 7-3 record in dual match play. Anderson and partner David Wright (Guayaquil, Ecuador) are also producing in doubles play with a dual match record of 2-1.

“We need to get some good wins outside the conference.” Thorne said. “We need to play well to gain some momentum going into the rest of our ACC season.”
