ASHEVILLE, N.C. - The UNC Asheville men's tennis team improved to 5-2 on the season with a 5-2 victory over visiting Tennessee Tech Sunday afternoon at the Asheville Racquet Club Downtown.


The Bulldogs won their second match in a row, despite having to play indoors due to the cold weather in the Asheville area.


The Blue & White earned the doubles point with victories at #1 and #3 flights.


Leading 1-0 after doubles, the Bulldogs earned four wins in singles to avenge a loss to the Golden Eagles suffered last year. Asheville earned straight-set wins from Adrien Langeard (1), Daniel Kripak (3), Alex Crocker (4) and John Schubel (5).
