William and Mary claimed the doubles point after sweeping three doubles matches from the Buccaneers. Trevor Spracklin and Pat Brown defeated Roberto Fernandez and Juan Yannuzzi, 8-4. Geoff Russell and Brian Lubin downed Gustavo Gomez and Pablo Sahagun, also by a 8-4 score. Marcos Pavlovich and Antonio Bugge fell to Chris Erickson and Brooks, 8-4. This is a tough start for our team. Said coach Dave Mullins. We played some tight matches and had a few chances to win some sets but we lost some tie-breakers and some 7-6 sets. We competed well, we just have to get more match-tough. ETSU plays against another nationally-ranked squad tomorrow, the 40th-ranked Kentucky Wildcats at 7:30 p.m. from the Cedar Bluff Racquet Club in Knoxville, Tenn.. We look forward to playing Kentucky tomorrow, they are a very talented and tough team and we look forward to bouncing back from today's matches, said Mullins.
