Box Score

ATLANTA –

The Georgia Tech men’s tennis team (9-3, 1-2 ACC) fell to No. 24 Miami (7-3, 1-0), 5-2, Friday evening at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.

The Yellow Jackets freshmen doubles tandem of Doug Kenny and Eliot Potvin won the first doubles match of the day, 8-4, over Keith Crawley and Hector Nieto but the Jackets could not capitalize, losing both the No. 1 and No. 2 doubles and the first point of the day.

With a 1-0 lead, the Hurricanes would extend their lead after taking the first singles match of the day as Carl Sundberg defeated Scott Blackmon, 6-3, 6-3, at the No. 4 spot. David North would bring the Jackets within one as he would outlast David Rosenfeld, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, from the No. 2 position.

Miami would move ahead 3-0 after No. 3 Daniel Vallverdu held off freshman Guillermo Gomez, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, from the top spot in the lineup. The Hurricanes sealed the win when Vicek Subramanian defeated Potvin, 7-5, 5-7, 6-4, in a tightly contested battle at No. 3 singles.

Freshman Miguel Muguruza picked up a three-set, 6-2, 4-6, 7-6, win over J.C. Whitner at the sixth position for the Jackets.

The Jackets will return to the courts next Wednesday, March 12 against No. 3 Georgia in Athens.
