Charlottesville, Va. ? The UVa men’s tennis looks to rebound this weekend, as they host Georgetown, Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. at the Sheridan Snyder Tennis Center. The match will be held at 5:30pm at Boars Head Racquet club if it rains.

The Cavaliers are 6-3 on the season, after falling to a very strong Florida State team last weekend. Against Georgetown, the Cavaliers are 11-2, most recently picking up a 5-0 win over the Hoyas on Feb. 7, 1998.

“I am pleased with the effort and performance against Florida State but not the outcome. The team is really working hard and I have seen a tremendous improvement in each and every player. We had a great week of practice and I look for another good performance against the Hoyas” said head coach Brian Boland.

Prior to its match with Florida State, the Cavaliers had won five of its previous seven spring contests.

Leading the way for the Cavaliers in the win column is Stephen Nolen and Jason Romesburg. Nolen and Romesburg each have 13 victories on the season, Nolen primarily at No. 1 singles and Romesburg, primarily at No. 3 singles. Romesburg was praised for his victory against Florida State.

Also praised were Greg Alpert and Jonathan Chou. Alpert, who has moved into the starting spot at No. 6 singles, picked up the other victory against Florida State, while Chou went down to the wire in his match. In any event, Boland is pleased with the team’s progress, and feels they are on their way.
