JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 3, 2017) – After moving the match to the Bristol Racquet Club due to strong winds, the ETSU men’s tennis team fell 4-2 in a tough matchup against North Florida, but senior David Biosca (Sant Fruitos de Bage, Spain) upset the No. 64 player in the nation on Saturday. 

The Ospreys worked quickly as they swept the first two doubles matches 6-3. No. 59 Diego Nunez (Monterrey, Mexico) and Robert Herrera (Barcelona, Spain) were ahead 4-3 in their doubles game, but the match went unfinished.

Both of ETSU points came in singles play and also in straight sets. No. 101 Biosca upset No. 64 Jack Findel-Hawkins as he swept the highly ranked Osprey. Biosca moves to 3-2 in singles playing solely out of the No. 1 slot. No. 69 Herrera was the other Buccaneer to pick up a win in singles as he defeated Yannick Zuern in straight sets. Herrera advances to 6-1 on the season and 10-3 between doubles and singles play this year.

ETSU will begin its season-long road trip on March 6 as the Bucs will travel to Miami. The road trip consists of seven road contests with three games being played in the state of Florida and four Southern Conference matches.
