TROJAN TENNIS TEAM BOUNCES BARTONApril 7, 2009
WILSON, NC--The Trojan tennis team defeated Barton 8-1 today; with the win, the Trojans improve to 5-1 in conference play this year and sit in second place in Conference Carolinas, as they head down the home stretch of the season. Freshman Stephane Murray improved to 9-1 on the year, as he has lost just three sets in singles competition for the year. "We are really starting to click at the right time," said head coach Joey Eskridge
. "With all the schedule issues we have had, I am pleased with how this team has responded--especially lately." AU faces a tough week, as they will do battle on the road against ITA #2 Valdosta State and ITA #5 Armstrong Atlantic. All this to make a go at a conference title, and hopefully avenge a mid-season loss to Lees-McRae in the process.
