04/01/2003

ALTOONA, PA — The Frostburg State men's tennis team dropped a narrow 5-4 road match to Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference foe Penn State Altoona Tuesday afternoon at the Blair Racquet Club.

The Bobcats (4-4, 2-1 AMCC) opened by winning two of the three doubles contests.

Junior Justin Stephens (Oakland, Md./Southern Garrett) and senior Sean Shillinger (Darnestown, Md./Quince Orchard) teamed for an 8-3 win over David Bruno and Yannick Riveti at No. 1 doubles, and sophomore Andrew Spangenberg (Frederick, Md./Frederick) and Gary Lyst (Silver Spring, Md./Blair) followed with an 8-3 victory over Jim Hofer and Jared Feerrar at No. 2.

Penn State Altoona (3-2, 2-1) got on the board with a win at No. 3, as Andrew Turow and Sean Condit downed junior Pete Della-Luna (Moshpee, Mass./Longmeadow) and senior Scott Ruest (Waldorf, Md./McDonough), 8-4.

Stephens continued his strong singles play, improving to 7-1 with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Bruno at the top flight.

However, the Lions captured the Nos. 2-5 flights to seal the victory.

Lyst dropped a hard-fought 1-6, 6-3, 1-6 decision to Feerrar at the second spot, and Ruest fell to Hofer, 6-3, 6-4, at the third flight.

Riveti handed Shillinger a 6-3, 6-1 loss at No. 4, and Condit was a 6-2, 6-1 winner over Spangenberg at No. 5.

Della-Luna downed Evan Manasse at the sixth position to account for FSU's final point.
