JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Lipscomb men’s tennis team went on the road Thursday and dropped a 6-1 decision to North Florida at the UNF Tennis Complex.
With the loss, the Bisons fall to 7-12 overall and 2-4 in the ASUN, while UNF improved to 11-10 and 4-2.
Lipscomb was unable to gain any momentum against the Ospreys, as it only won two sets between doubles and singles.
UNF took the first point of the day with 6-1 and 6-2 victories on the second and third lines in doubles.
Victor Chaw was the lone bright spot for the Bisons with his play in singles. The junior defeated UNF’s No. 1 Sahil Deshmukh 6-1, 6-4, despite the match already being clinched 4-0 at the time by the Ospreys.
It was Chaw’s second consecutive victory and improved him to 9-7 on the year.
Lipscomb will wrap up its regular season on Saturday with a 2 p.m. trip to DeLand, Florida to face the Stetson Hatters.
