MT. PLEASANT, S.C. - The College of Charleston men's tennis team continued tournament play at the home-hosted Cougar Challenge winning five of six singles flights and two of three doubles flights against Southern Conference foe Appalachian State on Saturday afternoon at the CofC Tennis Center at Patriots Point.
Sophomore transfer Sebastian Lopez (Medellin, Colombia), junior Crescente Lesser (Santiago, Chile), sophomore Alon Faiman (Ramat Hasharon, Israel), freshman Zack Lewis (Richmond, Ky.) and sophomore Charlie Ghriskey (Mount Kisco, N.Y.) all were winners in singles. Ghriskey scored two love sets to defeat Tyler Pyle of ASU, 6-0, 6-0, in Flight 6 singles.
In doubles action, Ghriskey also combined with Faiman for an 8-2 victory over Robert Jenkins and Andrew McKinnon in Flight 2 doubles, while freshman Josh Record (Tallahassee, Fla.) teamed up with Zack Lewis for an 8-0 rout of Steve Lake and Tyler Pyle in Flight 3 doubles.
"We played well today against another conference opponent, which will give us a feeling for them as we move into the spring," CofC Head Coach Jay Bruner said. "We competed well on every court and we stayed focus on our courts. Tomorrow will be a good day for us to see our stamina over a three-day weekend."
The Cougars will close out fall competition tomorrow versus Charlotte at 11:30 a.m. (ET).
