Men's Tennis Falls to Penn State Altoona
04/02/2002

ALTOONA, PA - The Bobcat men's tennis team dropped its first Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference match in nearly two years, as it fell to host Penn State Altoona, 7-2, Tuesday afternoon.

FSU (2-2, 1-1 AMCC) had won 13 straight league contests dating back to April 4, 2000, when it fell to Penn State Altoona, 6-3.

The Lions opened a 3-0 lead by sweeping doubles play. David Bruno and Scott Kowalski edged Justin Stevens and Terrence Killen, 9-7, at the top flight, while Jared Feerar and James Goldstein downed David Butler and Sean Shillinger, 8-3, at the No. 2 spot.

Jim Hofer and Yannick Riveti completed the sweep with an 8-3 win over Scott Ruest and Matt Dickey at the third position.

Penn State Altoona continued its strong play in singles action, winning four of the six matches.

Bruno edged Stephens, 6-2, 7-6 (7-1), at the No. 1 flight before Killen answered by downing Goldstein, 6-3, 6-1, at the second spot.

Kowaleski then defeated Ruest, 6-2, 6-4, at the No. 3 flight, and Rivetti followed with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Butler at the fourth position.

Shillinger picked up FSU's second victory of the day by getting past Hofer, 7-6 (9-7), 6-2, but Feerar closed out Altoona's win with a 6-1, 6-0 defeat of freshman Andrew Spangenberg.

The Bobcats return to action on Thursday when they host Pitt-Greensburg at 4:00 p.m.
