WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Feb. 13, 2021) – The ETSU Men’s Tennis squad fell to 14th-ranked Wake Forest on Saturday afternoon, dropping a 7-0 decision in Winston-Salem, N.C. With the loss, ETSU drops to 0-5 on the campaign, including 0-4 against Power Five opponents.

The Bucs put up a fight for the coveted doubles point, but fell just short as Wake Forest claimed a pair of 6-4 doubles victories. The Demon Deacons secured the doubles point by winning matches in the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles slots.
