Eagles tennis Suffers Conference Loss

(Posted April 15, 2005)

Romain Plessis earned a three-set singles victory for Juniata in its match against Elizabethtown.

Elizabethtown, Pa.? Playing its second match in as many days against one of the top teams in the Commonwealth Conference, the Juniata College men?s tennis team was unable to pull out a victory as the Eagles fell by a 6-1 to Elizabethtown Friday afternoon. Juniata is now 6-4 overall and 2-4 in the Commonwealth, while the Blue Jays improved to 10-4 overall and 6-0 in the conference.

The home team controlled the three doubles matches to capture the doubles point in the match. The third doubles duo of Jack Walfish (Spring-Ford/Royersford) and Michael Meadows (Hollidaysburg/Duncansville) provided the tightest of the doubles decisions as they fell 8-2.

In singles action Romain Plessis (Catholic University of Lille/Lyon, France) provided Juniata?s lone win as he earned a 6-3, 3-6, 10-7 victory at the sixth singles position. Brian Sykes (Gateway Regional/Woodburry Heights, N.J.) extended his number-two singles match to three sets but fell by a 6-3, 3-6, 10-0 score. Each of Juniata?s other four singles matches were decided in straight sets.

Juniata returns to action with its regular-season finale on Tuesday, as the Eagles host Susquehanna for a Commonwealth match.
