After falling to Columbus State last season, VSU men’s and women’s tennis teams look to bounce back against one of the nation’s best.
Friday marks the sixth match of the men’s tennis season. They will be taking on No. 10 Columbus State in Columbus, Ga.
During the last meeting, the men’s team had a close encounter with CSU, losing by only 3 points, 6-3.
After only playing against three opponents in the 2014 season, the Cougars are undefeated going into this match.
The Cougars have dominated the three opponents that they’ve played this season, winning matches 8-1 against Georgia Southwestern, 9-0 against Fort Valley State and 9-0 against Stillman.
CSU has not played a match since Feb. 9 as VSU’s men’s team heads to Columbus after upsetting No. 9 Rollins Feb. 15.
The men are looking for their fourth straight victory.
VSU’s No. 16 women’s team has an even tougher challenge against No. 5 Lady Cougars.
Going into this match, the Lady Cougars are undefeated after dominating Clayton State, Fort Valley State and Stillman.
The ladies most recently beat GCSU 8-1 and Young Harris 9-1, both at home.
