Jacksonville, FL - Florida Atlantic University's men's tennis team was washed away at the Hasting's Memorial/JU Invitational Sunday afternoon, along with the rest of the tournament. Senior Jeremy Perez and freshman Mauricio Paiz never got a chance to play after advancing into the final round of the "Flight B" doubles consolation bracket. The rain that suspended the tournament Saturday resumed Sunday forcing officials to cancel the remaining matches in the tournament.
Perez did get the opportunity to play a rain shortened match in the singles "Flight B" consolation semifinal. Perez dropped the match 9-7 against Jacksonville's Neil Sehgal.
The men's next chance to get on the court will be when they open the spring season January 20, against Northwood University in West Palm Beach, FL.
