ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.- After a successful but busy trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina, the Palm Beach Atlantic University men’s tennis team returned to the sunshine state on Saturday for a matchup with in-state rival Flagler College.
After struggling in the doubles section, the Fish fought back admirably but finished out the contest with a 5-3 defeat at the hands of the Saints. Dropping to 9-4 on the season, PBA currently sits at the #37th spot nationally.
