Greenville, N.C. - The Coastal Carolina men's tennis team won two of its four doubles matches on the final day of the East Carolina Invitational.
Due to inclement weather, the doubles matches were moved indoors and the singles matches were not played. Because of the match cancellations, no flight champions were declared.
The Chanticleers' two doubles win came from the pairs of Philippe Tsangarides/Leo Christofides and Garik Yedigarian/Ted Nilsson. Tsangarides and Christofides overpowered East Carolina's Wolterbeek and Morris 8-3. Yedigarian and Nilsson achieved the same result over Ruzic and Salinas of James Madison.
Coastal finished the three-day tournament with a total of eight singles and seven doubles wins for a 15-13 overall record. "I was pleased with the overall effort in doubles and especially pleased with a couple of solid wins against East Carolina on Sunday," said head coach Chris Powers. "We still need work in singles, but I think we are heading in the right direction for this point in the fall season."
The Chants will next be in action Oct. 4-6 at the University of Virginia Fall Invitational in Charlottesville, Va.
