DELAND, Fla. – Appalachian State University men’s tennis suffered a 6-1 decision to a strong Stetson (8-2) squad on Sunday afternoon at the Molly Stoll Tennis Center in Deland, Fla.

 

App State (7-5) fell in the doubles portion of the match and five of six singles contests. Scott Webster (Perth, Australia/Scotch College) was the lone player to pick up a point in singles competition. The senior is 7-3 this season and has won his last three matches. 

 

The tandem of Blake Carter (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield) and Alexander Free (Johns Creek, Ga./James Madison) were playing in their first match as a tandem this season. The duo would fall to Loic Blanco and Antoine Sanchez, 6-3. Alex Pavkovich (Queensland, Australia/Mansfield State) and Ben Webster (Perth, Australia/Scotch College) suffered a 6-4 decision in the clinching match to Malik Bhatnagar and Angus Bradshaw, 6-4. Scott and Milo Bargeron were ahead, 4-1, and on their way to a victory but the contest went unfinished. 

 

In singles play, Ben fell to a tough opponent in Bhatnagar, who came into the match with an unblemished 8-0 record. Carter dropped his affair to William Shkrob, 6-3, 6-3 before Bargeron fell to Sanchez, 6-2, 6-4. Scott’s straight set win over Blanco in a matchup of No. 1s might have been his most impressive of the season, as Blanco was 8-1 and on a four-match win streak coming into the afternoon. 

 

Pavkovich showed some fight in his match where he came back from a 3-6 setback to tie up the match in the second set, 6-2. However, the comeback fell short in the final frame, as he fell 6-0 to Bradshaw. Free was downed in a first set-tiebreaker to Coilin McNamara, 7-6, and then was topped, 6-1. 

 

App State looks to bounce back tomorrow with an early 9:30 a.m. contest against another tough foe in Mercer.
