NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 7, 2008) - The No. 56 ETSU men's tennis team defeated the conference foe Belmont, 4-0 on Thursday night at the Wildwood Tennis Club. ETSU improves to 10-3 overall and 2-0 in A-Sun play while the Bruins fall to 0-8, 0-3.

No. 61 Enrique Olivares (Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela) dropped Felipe Lima in the top position, 6-1, 6-0, while Sebastian Serrano (Cartagena, Colombia) cruised past Ignacio Gesto, 6-1, 6-0 in the No. 2 position.
