WINTER PARK, Fla.- With only two matches remaining before post-season play begins, the Palm Beach Atlantic University men's tennis team made the short trip upstate to the Rollins College campus for a Saturday afternoon showdown with the #6 ranked Tars. Defending their home court with tenacity, the Sailfish fell to hosting RC by a final score of 8-1.
Losing in straight sets in the singles matchups, the lone game taken on the day by the Blue and White came during the #1 doubles match when #22 ranked Krasimir Atanasov and Luke Bolanos teamed up to defeat their #12 ranked counterparts by a final score of 9-8.
The loss drops the Fish to 11-10 on the season, and their focus now turns to a visiting Florida Southern College who comes into town on Monday, April 11. PBA will host its final match at home in Gaines Park in West Palm Beach during a 3 pm meeting with the Moccasins.
