BUIES CREEK, N.C. - Head men’s tennis coach Chris Powers earned his 100th career win as Coastal Carolina defeated Campbell 5-2 Tuesday afternoon at Nisbet Tennis Center.
“I am so proud of these guys today,” said Powers. “The doubles point was an absolute batter and we held strong as a team in a hostile environment. Campbell pushed us hard but we matched their intensity in every match.”
Coastal won the next two points with Sam Barr (6-2, 6-1) and Kusada (6-0, 6-3) winning their matches to put the Chants up 3-0. Campbell earned its first point when Fernando Guillen defeated Leo Christofides 6-3, 7-5.
Coastal clinched the match when two-time freshman of the week Garik Yedigarian won 6-2, 6-4 over Baro. The Chants are now 2-0 in the Big South and 7-1 overall while Campbell falls to 3-5 and 1-2 in BSC play.
In the other two matches Di Pasquale won 7-6, 6-3 while Danny Heidecker fell in three sets (6-2, 2-6, 6-3).
Coastal’s next match is scheduled for Tuesday, March 6 against UNC Greensboro. Match will be held at the Billy Nichols Tennis Center in Conway beginning at 2 p.m.
