SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University men's and women's tennis teams were forced to relocate mid-match due to inclement weather on Saturday afternoon, migrating from the outdoor courts to the SU Indoor Tennis Center to complete their competition against Capital Athletic Conference opponent the University of Mary Washington after rainstorms swept through the area. Both matches were abbreviated due to the relocation.
The men's team (7-4, 2-1 CAC) suffered a 5-1 loss against the Eagles; senior Andrew Nottage took Mary Washington's nationally-ranked Kaz Murata to three sets at No. 1 singles. Junior Daniel Barnas earned the Sea Gulls' lone individual match victory of the day, taking a 6-4, 6-4 win at No. 3 singles.
The women's squad (6-2, 2-1 CAC) fell by a score of 5-0 to Mary Washington. Senior Angela Tenaglia and sophomore Jillian Poppe nearly earned the win at No. 1 doubles, falling 9-7. All three doubles matches were played, but sophomores Elaina Iosue (No. 2) and Victoria Handlin (No. 4) were the only Sea Gulls to have the opportunity to play singles due to the time constraints.
The Sea Gulls travel to Frostburg, Md., tomorrow (April 3) to face CAC opponent Frostburg State as well as Davis & Elkins College. Salisbury's matches against Frostburg will begin at 10 a.m.; matches against Davis & Elkins are set to begin at 3 p.m.
