Greer, S.C. – Men’s tennis played their last regular season match against Lenior-Ryhne College today. It was a short and sweet victory for the Crusaders. Due to their opponent’s eager desire to return home as quickly as possible, it was decided in advance to end the match as soon as one team had secured five individual wins.
Luckily for NGU, their five were achieved back to back, with wins for all three doubles pairs, including number three doubles for which Thomas Clack played in today as a replacement for an injured Juan Carlos Aguilera. Clack at number six singles and Timur Kamilou at number one singles, were the first to defeat their opponents in the individual matches and declare North Greenville the winner. William Ho was still on the court and in his third set when play came to a halt, as well as Jacob Rogers who had just won his first set.
Coach Mark Elliot says he will not know for sure about their invite to the NCCAA National tournament until Monday morning, but is especially hopeful after their last two wins.
