Hatters down Dolphins
The Jacksonville University men’s tennis team fell to Stetson 6-1 Thursday in DeLand, Florida.
The Dolphin’s Eduardo Martinez was able to secure JU’s only team point of the match. He won his individual match in three sets over Hans Adrian Riseng 6-7, 7-6, 1-0. With the win, Martinez is now 2-2 in conference play this season.
JU did find some success in the doubles portion of the match as Richard Casagrande and Jose Fantova teamed up to defeat Riseng and Njal Stene 8-5. This was the first time Casagrande and Fontova had been paired up this season.
Jacksonville moves to 1-3 in the conference and 3-13 overall after the lost. They will look to get their second conference win on March 31 when they travel to Fort Myers to take on Florida Gulf Coast.
