Miami Men’s Tennis Team falls to another Sunshine State foe.

Filed under: Uncategorized — tranquilo1212 @ 6:14 pm

It’s not often in Miami athletics that a team must face the rival Gators and Seminoles on the road in back-to-back matches, but that’s what the men’s tennis team was up against in the past week. Miami could not beat Florida or Florida State on the road either, losing 5-2 in Gainesville last Sunday and now being edged 4-3 in Tallahassee. Christian Blocker, Keith Crowley and Carl Sundberg picked up consecutive singles victories to erase an early 3-0 FSU lead, but Maciek Sykut clinched the victory for the Noles. The Noles picked up the doubles point over the Canes as well. Miami, ranked 24th, fell to 4-4 and 1-1 in conference play. Florida Sate improved to 10-4 and 1-0 in the ACC. Next up for Miami is an ACC match on Saturday, March 7 vs. Georgia Tech at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center in Coral Gables, FL at noon. The match will be Miami’s first at home in a month.
