Tigerville, S.C.—The North Greenville men’s tennis team has hit an early season stride, and is gaining momentum after winning its third consecutive match. The Crusaders slammed USC-Lancaster, Monday afternoon 8-1, to improve to 3-2 on the season.

The Crusaders took control of the match early, sweeping the singles competition. Samuel Avery and Juan Vargas continue to lead the Crusaders, winning their fourth singles match of the season. Both are now 4-1 on the season.

In doubles action, Juan Vargas and Josh Dority teamed up for their fourth win of the season. They are also 4-1 in dual matches. Hugo Ciarrocchi and Guilherme Ferreira also picked up a doubles win to improve to 3-2 on the season as a pair.

The netters are 1-1 in Conference Carolinas play with a showdown with fellow newcomer King College on the horizon. The Crusaders and Tornado will serve it up a month from now, on March 16th, in Bristol, Tennessee.
