CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (March 25, 2017) – The ETSU men’s tennis team has been cruising lately as the Bucs extended their win streak to six matches on Saturday as the Blue and Gold ran past Chattanooga 7-0 on the road.

The three Buccaneer doubles teams ran past their opposition as the three tandems outscored the Mocs 18-6.

David Biosca (Sant Fruitos de Bage, Spain) and Juan Lugo (Venezuela) won the first doubles match of the afternoon as the duo defeated Simon Bustamante and Nic Wilson 6-1. Wenceslao Albin (Salliquelo, Argentina) and David Gonzalez (Barcelona, Spain) capped off the doubles point for the Blue and Gold as they won 6-2 in the dual match. Even after claiming the doubles point, Robert Herrera (Barcelona, Spain) and Diego Nunez (Monterrey, Mexico) posted a 6-3 victory out of the No. 1 position for ETSU.

Going into singles competition, the Bucs won the first three singles matches to earn their fourth straight SoCon team victory.

Five of the six Buccaneer singles matches were claimed in straight sets. Herrera and Lugo have the longest individual winning streaks on the team as both have won five straight singles matches. Albin is right behind them as he has won three consecutive singles matches.

In the last 20 singles games for Biosca and Herrera, they have a combined 17-2 record (one match went unfinished).

After claiming two SoCon wins this weekend, the Bucs will take a week off as they prepare to open their longest home stretch of the season. ETSU opens that stretch with SoCon rival Samford on April 1 at 3 p.m.
