ST. MARY'S CITY, Md.—The Southern Virginia University men's tennis team dropped its road match on Saturday to future Capital Athletic Conference-opponent St. Mary's College of Maryland 7-2.
"St. Mary's [College] is a strong and experienced team that we must get ready to face in the conference next season," said fifth-year Head Coach Tony Caputo. "Andrew [Angerbauer] had a solid performance today and the confidence we gained today will show in matches down the road."
Southern Virginia (6-3) began its match against St. Mary's (6-5) with Brian Blocher (Oak Ridge, Tenn.) and Andrew Angerbauer (Bountiful, Utah) pulling off a narrow 8-6 victory at the No. 2 doubles position.
Angerbauer then followed the doubles success by winning his singles match 6-4, 6-3 defeating the Seahawks' No. 4 foe Wyatt Paulishak.
St. Mary's, however, took seven of the following nine matches on route to the Saturday win.
Men's tennis will travel on the road to face its second straight NCAA Division III opponent in Randolph-Macon College on Tues., Apr. 2 at 4 p.m.
