LEBANON, Tenn. – Devin Crotzer and Cristhian Hernandez both won their matches, but Jeremy Fleming dropped a straight-set decision, sending Lindsey Wilson to a 5-4 victory in men’s tennis action Tuesday morning at the Tommy Gray Memorial Courts. The match was suspended because of rain last Friday in Columbia, Ky., with LWC leading, 4-2.

The three singles matches played Tuesday had not yet started when the rain started.

Crotzer defeated Joe Cox, 6-1, 6-0, at No. 5 and Hernandez posted a 6-1, 6-2, victory at No. 6 over Clinton Berry. But LWC’s Andre Santos gave the Blue Raiders the victory with a 6-2, 6-2, triumph over Fleming at No. 4.

Cumberland will host Georgetown College this Friday at 1 p.m. and the Bulldogs play at Alabama-Huntsville on Saturday at 11 a.m.
