WILMINGTON, N.C. - The final tournament of the fall season for the Tulane men's tennis team was a successful one as the Green Wave closed out the UNC Wilmington Invitational on Sunday with four more singles wins.

The four wins carried the weekend total to 15, 10 in singles and five in doubles.

"This was a great tournament for our guys," Tulane head coach Mark Booras said. "They faced a lot of tough singles and doubles competition and came out with some qualify wins and ended the fall semester on a good note."

Senior Takuma Ohashi and sophomores Alex and Ian Van Cott all earned straight sets victories over opponents from Richmond, while junior Iain Sneddon defeated his opponent in three sets.

At the UTSA Futures qualifying draw in Niceville, Fla., Tulane freshman Sebastian Rey, playing for his home country of Great Britain, fell to Patrick Daciek of the United States, 6-0, 6-1, in the second round, while sophomore Dominik Koepfer, playing for Germany, lost to the ninth-seeded Alexandru Gozen of the United States, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4.

"I'm very happy with the direction our fall season went," Booras added. "We continued to work hard on making changes so we could see development throughout the tournament weeks. We saw some very solid results altogether. Now we need to adjust our focus a bit during the off season to finish off academically on a high note and take care of business with fitness and making the best of the shorter practice weeks so we can stay on top of our games and come back in January fresh and ready to go for the spring."



Tulane is scheduled to open the spring dual match season on Jan. 19 with a double header against Jackson State and Alcorn State.
