September 23, 2019

The Brevard College men’s tennis team dropped a dual match, 7-0 to NCAA Division II University of Virginia-Wise on Saturday in Wise, Virginia.

Despite dropping every match in the team competition, the Tornados produced two highly competitive results in singles play.

In number two singles, Brevard’s Ethan McGhee dropped two sets to UVA-Wise’s Coleton Burke. In both sets, however, McGhee pressed Burke to a set tiebreaker before ultimately falling 7-6, 7-6.

Meanwhile, BC’s Jamarcus Walker and John Robert Kilgore of UVA-W battled in the longest match of the day.

Walker won the first set 7-6 before Kilgore tied the match with a 6-4 win in set number two.

The third set tiebreaker went in favor of Kilgore who pulled away with a 10-7 win.

UVA-Wise swept the doubles competition, before winning each singles match to take the dual-match victory.

Women’s Team Drops Match 5-2

The Brevard College women’s tennis team dropped a 5-2 result to NCAA Division II University of Virginia Wise on Saturday in Wise, Virginia.

The Tornados produced two impressive wins in singles play with victories by freshmen Alli Kogoy and Sarah Iocovozzi.

Kogoy cruised in her number five singles match, defeating Megan Harwood of UVA-Wise.

Kogoy beat Harwood 6-3 in the first set before a dominant 6-1 second set to take the match.

Iocovozzi had to battle back after losing the first set 6-2 to Olivia Dishner in number six singles.

Iocovozzi fought hard to a 7-6 win in the second set to set up a match-deciding third set. The final set proved to be an intense battle, with Iocovozzi eventually finishing off Dishner with a 7-5 win.

Samantha Sepe (no. 1 singles), Hamrick Perry (no. 2 singles), Eleanor Flannery (no. 3 singles) and Margaret Correll (no. 4 singles) all dropped their singles matches in straight sets after UVA-Wise won the doubles competition to open the day’s action.
