ORLANDO, FL - The Florida Atlantic University men's tennis team competed at the UCF Fall Invitational.

On Friday, FAU won all nine of its matches against FGCU. In singles play, Olivier Sajous, Marc Abdelnour, Corey Smith and Osvaldo Benitez all won in straight sets. Joe Cadogan and Karol Szmurlo took three sets to defeat their opponents. Rain kept the team from competing on Saturday.

The team returned to action Sunday against the University of North Florida. Sajous, Cadogan, Szmurlo and Smith all recorded their second victories of the weekend, while Abdelnour and Benitez were defeated in singles matches. Rain also forced the cancellation of Sunday's doubles action.
