Tennis Drops Close Match in Home Opener

Frostburg, MD— The Frostburg State men's tennis team lost its first home match of the 2003 season 5-4 to Division II University of Charleston Friday afternoon at the Rawlings Heights Racquet Club in Rawlings, MD.

Charleston (2-3), which competes in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference , proved too tough for FSU, winning two of the three doubles matches and earning a 3-3 split the six singles tilts.

Bobcat juniors Justin Stephens (Oakland, Md./Southern Garrett) and Pete Della-Luna (Moshpee, Mass./Longmeadow) lost 2-8 to Drew College and Bobby Bircher in the No. 1 doubles match.

Seniors Scott Ruest (Waldorf, Md./McDonough) and Sean Shillinger (Darnestown, Md./Quince Orchard) then dropped an 4-8 decision to Chris Lasker and Daniel Judy at No. 3 doubles.

Sophomores Gary Lyst (Silver Spring, Md./Blair) and Andrew Spangenberg (Frederick, Md./Frederick) provided the Bobcats only doubles win of the afternoon, defeating Michael Marie and James Jamie 9-8 (7-5).

In singles competition, FSU held its own. Stephens won the No. 1 match 6-1, 6-1 over Marie. Ruest roared back to a three-set, 2-6, 6-0, 6-4 victory over Jamie in No. 5 singles, while Della-Luna won the No. 6 singles match, 6-3, 6-3 over Judy.

No. 2 College defeated Lyst 6-2, 6-3. Lasker topped Shillinger in the No.3 singles match 6-1, 6-1. Bicher downed Spangenberg in the No. 4 match in three sets 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.

The Bobcats (0-2) return to action Tuesday when they host Penn State-Altoona in the AMCC season opener at 3:30 at Frostburg State University.
