Men's Tennis Finishes Perfect in Fall Season

Written by Chris Pendleton

LYNCHBURG, Va.—The Southern Virginia University men's team continued its best start ever on Thursday with a 7-2 win at Randolph College as the Knights closed out their fall schedule at 5-0.

Southern Virginia (5-0) swept doubles play from Randolph (1-1) before taking four of six singles matched from the Wildcats.

Four different Knights—Adam Blocher, Brian Blocher, Tyler Clark and Stefan Vlassek—went 2-0 at Randoph winning both their doubles and singles matchups.

"It's a great feeling to start 5-0," said fourth-year head coach Tony Caputo. "We have a great group of guys with a chance to have a very special season. We need to work hard through the break and come ready to play in the spring."

Men's tennis is off until spring play begins in mid-March 2012.

Last season, Caputo led men's tennis to a 12-5 record, the first winning season in the program's five-year history.

Thursday's win marked the final match for Vlassek who will graduate in December.
