Dolphins bounce back with win over Bethune-Cookman

The JU men’s tennis team defeated Bethune-Cookman 6-1 on Tuesday at the Keith Watson Family Tennis Complex.

The Dolphins swept the doubles portion and won all but one of the singles matches to earn their first team victory of 2012.

Junior Jose Fantova won his first match of the season and did so in the number one slot.  He defeated Marc Misanovic in straight sets 6-2, 6-1.  Fantova teamed up with sophomore Larry Condez to win their doubles match 8-4. 

JU outscored Bethune-Cookman 66 sets to 30 in the singles matches en route to the 5 individual wins.   

The last time JU won all of its doubles matches as a team came against Florida Gulf Coast last season when the Dolphins hosted them on April 1, 2011. 

The Dolphins will look to be victorious again when they host College of Charleston Friday, February 17 at 2:00 pm.
