LEBANON, Tenn.-- Cumberland men's tennis earned a hard-fought 5-2 victory over RV Campbellsville at home on Saturday.
"We beat a very good Campbellsville team that should have been ranked in the top 25, so it is the type of match that we might not get that much credit for in terms of the overall rankings," Head Coach Thiago Lins said. "It was extremely close in every match and we played extremely well as a team."
Doubles play belonged to the Phoenix as they took all three doubles matches. The No. 1 doubles pair of N'Goma/Vaughan won their match 6-3 while the pair of Suarez/Wessels got it done in the No. 2 match as they won 6-3. The No. 3 pairing of Slapnik Trost/Hrzic took their match 7-5 to give the Phoenix a 3-0 sweep for the doubles point.
The excellent play of the Phoenix carried over into the singles matches as No. 1 Daniel Wessels won his match 6-3, 6-0, and No. 2 Adrijan Hrzic won his match 6-3, 7-5. Campbellsville took the No. 3 and No. 4 singles points with victories over Hugues N'Goma and German Suarez.
At No. 5 Jackson Vaughan won his match 6-4, 6-3, and No. 6 Sacha Colomban won his match 6-3, 6-4 to take the final two points and win the match 5-2.
Cumberland stays at home to take on Georgetown College tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. to close out the weekend.
"Tomorrow is another big match as we are working hard to stay focused on our goals for the season," Lins said.  "Being positive and working together as a team is key for us and we are improving as the season goes along."
