ETSU/UNF men's tennis match called due to severe rain
"I hate it to leave without closing this chapter. The only thing we can do is prepare as best as we can for next week and take care of business." -Head Coach Yaser Zaatini

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (March 29, 2014) - Due to severe rain in Jacksonville, Fla., No. 59 ETSU's match versus No. 73 North Florida has been called due to rain. When play was suspended Friday, March 28, the teams were knotted at 2-2.

Quotes from Head Coach Yaser Zaatini:

"It was panning out to be a great battle. Our guys battle hard and were patient. UNF is a solid team, but our guys held their ground and I felt we had regained control of the match. Certainly, it could have gone either way. I hate it to leave without closing this chapter, but I guess we have to live with it an play on. The only thing we can do is prepare as best as we can for next week and take care of business."

LOOKING AHEAD

ETSU, a winner of six consecutive matches, will continue Atlantic Sun play Saturday, April 5 as it hosts USC Upstate at 2:00 p.m.
