Charlottesville, Va. – The UVa men’s tennis team dropped a 5-2 decision to Brown on Thursday afternoon. The Cavaliers now stand at 9-6 on the season.

“I am really disappointed in our performance,” head coach Brian Boland said. “I thought we came out flat as a team and it cost us a chance to win. Brown is a good team and deserved to win today. Individually, Jason Romesburg continued to play great tennis for us.”

The Cavaliers received wins from Jason Romesburg and Stephen Nolen, who are the team leaders in victories this season. Romesburg picked up his 18th victory of the season at No. 2 singles, defeating Nick Malone, 6-3, 7-5. Nolen added his 17th victory with a win over Jamie Cerratoni, 7-5, 1-6, 7-5.

Nolen, along with Michael Duquette, picked up a win at No. 1 doubles over Chris Drake and Justin Natale, 8-6. That marks the six win in a row for Nolen and Duquette in doubles.

The Cavaliers return to action this weekend as they travel to Georgia Tech on Saturday, followed by a visit to Clemson on Sunday afternoon.

NOTE – The Cavaliers return home on April 6 when they host N.C. State at 1 p.m, part of a big UVa men’s tennis alumni reunion. An alumni match will follow.
