Game Marks Panthers’ regular season finale
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Hoping to put an end to its recent five match skid, Florida Tech men’s tennis (12-9, 1-4 SSC) welcomes Florida Southern (5-17, 1-4 SSC) to the courts at Fee Avenue Park for a 2:30 p.m. ET match on Thursday.
The match marks the Panthers’ regular season finale, with the Sunshine State Conference Tournament drawing near.
The tournament will be held April 23-25 in Saint Leo, Florida.
Despite the team experiencing a rough patch in the last few matches, freshman Ricardo Corona has been a definite bright spot. Corona has been victorious in 13 of his last 14 singles matches.
Corona leads the team in singles during the duals campaign after going 16-3 to this point. He has also teamed up with Riley Lorenz to tie for the team lead with a 7-5 doubles mark.
Beau Fieldsend and Mattias Hartmann have also accumulated a 7-5 record.
The Mocs are hoping to build off of the momentum gained from a 7-2 win over Webber International on April 8.
Prior to the victory, FSC had fallen in its last three matches and nine of the previous 10.
Brian Slivonik leads the Mocs in singles wins over the course of the duals season with an 8-10 record. In doubles, Fabian Lundberg and Laurent Mailloux lead with a 4-9 mark.
