ASHEVILLE, N.C. - The UNC Asheville men's tennis team easily picked up its 10th win of the season with a 7-0 victory over visiting King College Thursday afternoon at the ARC.


The Bulldogs (10-9) had little trouble with the Tornados (9-7) on the day. Asheville won the doubles point handily and then won all six singles matches in straight sets.


After doubles play, the school honored its four seniors playing their final home match for the Blue & White. The four seniors are Pete Conaty, Ryan Matthews, Adrien Langeard and Matt Waissen.


"We appreciate what our seniors have done for this program," stated Bulldog head coach Lise Gregory. "Our program has come along way the past four years before of these four young men."


Asheville plays next in the first round of the Big South Conference Championships next week at Winthrop. The match-ups should be announced by the league on Sunday.
