Men's tennis falls to Winthrop

March 20, 2008


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The JU men's tennis team dropped a 6-1 decision to Winthrop on Wednesday in their only midweek match.

The Dolphins (4-8) match against Oklahoma was cancelled as the Sooners were unable to leave Norman and will not be rescheduled.

"We're making progress each time out," said JU head coach Shane Wood. "Winthrop is a good team and it was a good test for us. Hopefully we're learning from each match as we head down the stretch."

Francisco Riveroll had the lone point for JU in the match, picking up a 6-3, 6-0 win in the No. 3 match. Vinny Craveiro lost the No. 5 match in three sets, 6-1, 5-7, 12-10.

The Dolphins are back in action again on Saturday at the travel to Florida A&M.
