Men’s Tennis Season Ends In A-10 Championship First Round
MASON, Ohio – The St. Bonaventure men's tennis team had its season come to a close on Friday in the opening round of the Atlantic 10 Men's Tennis Championship with a 4-0 setback to No. 6 seed Richmond.
The 11th-seeded Bonnies could get nothing going against the Spiders, who advanced to the Quarterfinals to face Duquesne.
Bonaventure got its lone win of the match at No. 1 doubles as juniors Oscar Yanez and Luis Guevara teamed up for an 8-3 win over the partnership of Sebastian Fauchet and Jesse Feder. However, Richmond claimed victories at No. 2 and No. 3 to claim the doubles point.
In singles action, Richmond won matches at the No. 1, No. 3 and No. 5 positions – with the win at No. 1 sealing the victory for the Spiders, 4-0.
Matches are typically played to a best-of-seven format; however, in tournament play once a winner has been determined (Richmond with four of the seven wins) play is stopped with the remaining matches going unfinished.
