Paladins Top Georgia Southern, 6-1, To Push Winning Streak To Seven Matches

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The Furman men's tennis team topped Georgia Southern, 6-1, Friday at the Mickel Tennis Center to push the Paladins' winning streak to seven matches.

The Paladins won two of three doubles matches to claim the opening point.  Junior Jake Munns and sophomore Ivan Mitric blanked Diego Finkelstein and Antonio Muniz, 6-0, in the top-seeded contest, and juniors Clarke Wilson and Jake Bhangdia topped Carlos Garcia and Pascal Wagemaker, 6-4, at flight two.  Furman sophomores Drew Singerman and Henrik Atlevi led Stefano Di Aloy and Martijn Kerssens, 5-4, in the unfinished flight three match.

Furman captured the top five singles matches.  Mitric, who ranks 104th nationally, outlasted Muniz, 7-6(5), 5-7, 6-1, at flight one, and Wilson came from behind to beat Di Aloy, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, in the number two contest.  At flight three, Munns won in straight sets, 6-3, 7-5, over Finkelstein, and Bhangdia downed Murphy McCullough, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, at number four.  Singerman held on for a 5-7, 6-4, 1-0(10-8) advantage versus Wagemaker at flight five.

The Eagles' point came at flight six, where Garcia defeated Atlevi, 7-5, 6-4.

Furman (8-3, 1-0 SoCon) hits the road for the team's Spring Break trip this week.  The Paladins will square off versus Valparaiso in Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday.
