Charlottesville, Va. – The UVa men’s tennis team dropped a 5-2 decision to No. 41 Florida State, but not without a valiant effort from a few individuals. The Cavaliers now stand at 6-3 on the season.

“They really took control of the match with the doubles point,” head coach Brian Boland added. “This was a difficult match for us, but our guys competed hard. I think a month from now, we’ll be a better team, as I’ve been impressed by this team’s work ethic. I’m most impressed with Gregory Alpert, who fought hard today and won a great match. Jason Romesburg had a great win for us, and Jonathan Chou fought to the end of his match.”

Jason Romesburg picked up a 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 win over Matt Cloer at No. 3 singles, while Alpert defeated Gustov Bucht at No. 6 singles, with a 7-6, 4-6, 10-9 win over Gustov Bucht. Romesburg ups his record to 13-8, tied with Nolen for the most victories on the team, while Alpert improves to 8-4.

The Cavaliers return to action on Saturday, March 16, when they host Georgetown at 1 p.m, at the Sheridan Snyder Tennis Center.
