Rain Shortned Contest Goes Sailfish Way With Victory

Written By: Michael Brown, Palm Beach Atlantic University SID

HILTON HEAD, S.C.- Not originally on the schedule, the Palm Beach Atlantic University men's tennis team picked up an extra match during their stay in Hilton Head, South Carolina, as they took on Malone College on Thursday afternoon. The Fish came out on top as the rains started to come and clinched the match with a 5-1 lead.

Improving their overall record to 8-3, the Sailfish began the match with three straight victories in doubles and made fairly quick work in the singles as well with senior Paul Segodo (Benin, Africa) clinching the final tally with both teams heading for cover as the rains came down.
