Men's Tennis Extends Win Streak to Four With Shutout of Howard
BALTIMORE- The UMBC men's tennis team extended its winning streak to four straight with a 4-0 victory over Howard in the first match played outdoors at the UMBC Tennis Complex. The teams did not compete in doubles competition and the match has halted due to rain after the Retrievers had earned the fourth point.
Sophomore Melker Svard (Gothenburg, Sweden) got on the board first for the hosts, defeating Ismael Kaouache, 6-1, 6-3 at No. 2 singles. Classmate Alex Drean (Bayonne, France) extended the lead to 2-0 with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Myron Davis at the No. 3 position.
"Eliott Loubatie has proven to be a reliable performer in the line-up and Melker Svard also continues to impress with his fourth consecutive strong outing," said Hubbard.
