Jefferson City, TN – Sophomore Frederic Schlossmann won both of his matches in Austin Peay State University (APSU) men’s tennis match against Carson-Newman; however, the Governors fell 6-1 against the Eagles, Thursday, at the Buddy Catlett Tennis Complex in Jefferson City.
Schlossmann and Senior Anton Damberg continued their strong play along Austin Peay State University’s top singles line. The dup won their team-best third match of the season in a 6-3 victory against Carson-Newman’s Ids Waterbolk and Gjorgji Jankulovski.
In singles play, Schlossmann defeated Carson Newman’s Marnix Van Dalen – the No. 31 singles player in the Intercollegiate Tennis Associations Division II National Singles Rankings – in straight sets to claim his third win from the top position.
Anchoring the APSU Govs’ singles lineup, freshman Hogan Stoker was locked in a back-and-forth battle with Waterbolk. After falling 6-2 in the first set, Stoker took the second set in a tiebreaker, before falling 10-4 in the 10-point tiebreaker.
