Dolphins downed by Trojans

The JU men’s tennis team fell to the Troy University Trojans 5-2 on Sunday afternoon at the Keith Watson Family Tennis Complex. 

Sophomore Larry Condez won for the third time in his last four matches.  He defeated Tadju Davies in straight sets 6-1, 6-3.  Condez is now 4-5 as individual in the 2012 season.

The other Dolphin victory came at the hands of freshman Eduardo Martinez.  He rebounded after losing the first set to win 0-6, 6-4, 6-1.  This marks Martinez’s fifth win on the season.

JU moves to 2-9 with the loss and will look to rebound against Appalachian State when they host the Mountaineers on Tuesday.
