BOCA RATON, Fla. (March 13, 2014) – Florida Atlantic men’s tennis fell to in-conference competitor Eastern Carolina on Wednesday 4-2. FAU looked good early winning the doubles point but was unable to hold on the match losing four singles matches and falling to 4-2. The lost to ECU is the Owls third consecutive loss dropping FAU to 7-9 on the season.
FAU’s Richard Meade was the only player to secure a point for the Owls in singles, defeating Mario Martinez 7-5, 6-1. FAU junior Sean Bacha was one game away from a win against Damien Brenard, but his match was unfinished because ECU had already clinched the match.
