WINCHESTER Va.—The Southern Virginia men's tennis team dropped its third consecutive match on Friday, losing at Shenandoah University 9-0.
"It has been a difficult week having to play without a few of our team members," said fifth-year Head Coach Tony Caputo. "The weather conditions also really effected us, which is something we'll need to learn from in order to improve."
Shenandoah (3-9) handed Southern Virginia (6-6) its second straight shutout defeat by winning all nine matches on route to the victory.
Andrew Angerbauer (Bountiful, Utah) and Kenneth Mize (Parker, Colo.) played the tightest match of the afternoon at the No. 2 doubles position, but dropped the close 8-6 competition to the Hornets' Vladimir Daskalov and Will Leach.
Men's tennis will head into its final week of the season heading to Institute, W.Va., on Tues., Apr. 9 to face NCAA Division II-opponent West Virginia State University.
