The No. 1-4 spots failed to record a victory
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Just two days after a long, strenuous match against Palm Beach Atlantic, Florida Tech men’s tennis was defeated by Flagler Sunday afternoon by a tally of 6-3.
Mattias Hartmann and Ricardo Corona were the lone team to escape with a win in doubles competition, taking down Hunter Hutcheson and Justen Louis 8-5.
However, the bottom part of the order performed well. Corona once again topped Louis 6-4, 6-4. In the No. 6 space, Wade Ball defeated John Bailey 7-5, 7-6.
Despite the final score, head coach Bill Macom was upbeat about the match.
“We did a great job of staying in the match after going down 2-1 in doubles,” said Macom.
“It was one of our best team performances in the past few years.”
The No. 1-4 spots failed to record a victory for the Panthers.
The FIT men will be back in action in exactly one week, squaring off against Valdosta State on Feb. 15 at DeSoto Park in Satellite Beach.
That match will begin at 10:30 a.m. ET.
