Men's Tennis sweeps Austin Peay, welcomes UAB Saturday

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Lipscomb men’s tennis went on the road Friday afternoon and swept Austin Peay 7-0 for its first win of the 2019 season at the Governors Tennis Center.

The dismantling marked the fifth-consecutive victory for the Bisons in the series and the second-straight sweep. The Govs’ (0-3) last win against Lipscomb came in 2014.

The Bisons picked up the doubles point for the second consecutive outing with victories in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots.

The duos of Victor Chaw/Pablo Caffarena and Jorge Ortegon/Pedro Uribe each won their doubles match by a score of 6-2.

In singles action, Lipscomb earned straight-set sweeps in five of the six pairings. Chaw downed Almantas Ozelis 6-4, 6-2 in the top spot to earn his first singles decision of the year.

In the No. 2 slot, Caffarena came from behind to upend APSU’s Timo Kiesslich 5-7, 6-2, 10-5. In the fourth spot, Francesco Tacconi blanked Chad Woodham 6-0 in the first set, before getting the victory with a tight 7-5 win in set two.

Ortegon (6-1, 7-5), Uribe (6-2, 6-3) and David Skrabut (6-4, 6-3) helped the Bisons to a perfect day on the courts in the third, fourth and sixth slots.
