Men's Tennis Falls To UNC-Charlotte

Saturday, April 08, 2000

Johnson City, Tenn. - The UNC Charlotte 49ers defeated ETSU, 4-3, in men's tennis action at Memorial Center courts. The win improves UNCC to 12-7 while ETSU falls to 11-7.

ETSU opened the match by winning two of the three doubles matches to take the doubles point. In singles, UNCC was able to take advantage of the abscence of ETSU's #1 player, Gustavo Gomez, who was sidelined with a shoulder injury and take four of the six singles matches. Gian-Carl Zeoli defeated Matt Keeter 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 in the crucial #6 singles match to give the 49ers the victory. Zeoli held serve at 5-5 in the third set and then broke Keeter to win the set.

ETSU returns to action tomorrow when the Bucs host Appalachian State (10:00) and the Citadel (3:00) in a pair of Southern Conference matches.
