CONWAY, S.C. – Coastal Carolina men’s tennis seniors Matt Gordon and Peter Billingham were recently ranked as the No. 82 doubles tandem in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association national poll.
Gordon and Billingham become just the second team in school history to be nationally-ranked by the ITA.
The duo owns a 5-1 record this season at No. 1 doubles and opened the year on a five-match winning streak.
“These guys represent what our tennis program is all about this year,” Coastal Carolina head coach Chris Powers. “They are great competitors who give a tremendous effort on the court and in the classroom. I tip my hat to them.”
Coastal returns to action Tuesday at 1 p.m. when the Chants travel to Buies Creek, N.C., to take on Campbell.
