FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 9, 2009) - Led by sophomore Jeremy Bonnevalle (Keerbergen, Belgium), the ETSU men's tennis team earned four wins after first day action of the fourth annual UNF Fall Invitational at the UNF Tennis Center in Fort Myers, Fla.
The second year Buccaneer picked up his first victory of the day with a strong 6-0, 6-4, win over Atlantic Sun Conference rival Florida Gulf Coast player Matthew Rock.
After earning a first round bye, senior Daniel Isaza (Medellin, Columbia) added to the Buc total, in the Flight A bracket, with a second round win over Belmont's Renato Antun.
Fellow senior Jason Ramski (Chicago, Illinois) picked up his first win of the season with a quick straight set victory over Mercer's Victor Dias, 6-2, 6-3.
"Today I thought we played well," said ETSU assistant coach Ricky Rojas. "Anytime you play a number of conference opponents you look forward to see how your team is going to do. After today's matches I believe we have some areas we can improve in, but I look ahead for our guys to compete hard the rest of the weekend."
In doubles action, Bonnevalle, along with Ramski, advanced to Saturday's quarterfinal contest with a dominate duo win over Bethune Cookman's team of Cristian Cruz and Kristofer Martin.
