ANDERSON, S.C. – After going down 2-1 in the doubles round, Anderson University men’s tennis was unable to recover, falling 6-3 to in-state rival Limestone Thursday afternoon at Max Grubbs Memorial Courts.

In the doubles round, the Trojans came away with one victory as senior Danilo Faria and sophomore Paul Michael Calhoun claimed an 8-2 victory over LC’s Benji Lascari Diaz and Giacomo Campus at the No. 2 position. The teams of freshmen Juan Carracedo and Mateo Rivas (No. 1) and sophomores Tomas Passalacqua and Inaki Iriberry (No. 3) both posted 8-5 setbacks, as the Saints took the 2-1 lead into singles.

Looking to make a comeback in the singles portion, Rivas and Iriberry claimed three-set triumphs, as Rivas knocked off Stefano Soares at No. 3, 6-2, 3-6, 10-5, increasing his winning streak to six-straight. Iriberry increased his own winning streak to three straight with a 6-1, 5-7, 10-7 win over Campus at No. 5, moving to 8-4 on the year.

The visitors clinched the match with two straight-set victories, a retirement and a three-set win for their eighth win of the season and second against a SAC opponent.
