CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina men's tennis team dropped its first home match of the year, 6-1, against South Carolina State Monday afternoon at the Billy Nichols Tennis Center.
Prior to the match senior Danny Heidecker received a plaque recognizing his accomplishments during his time at Coastal Carolina. The lone senior, Heidecker earned the only Coastal point of the day, playing from the No. 1 position (6-2, 4-6, 10-5).
"South Carolina State played very well today and we didn't seem to have that extra gear today," said head coach Chris Powers. "I give them a lot of credit for their win today."
Coastal falls to 12-4 on the season while S.C. State improves to 17-2 in its final regular season match.
