ATHENS, Ga. - The William and Mary men's tennis team continued its Spring Break trip with a setback at No. 9-ranked Georgia, 7-0, on Monday afternoon. Playing its second of four matches against nationally-ranked foes over a five-day stretch, the Tribe fell to 6-7 on the year, while Georgia improved to 9-3.

The Bulldogs took the doubles point with 8-3 wins at each of the three positions. UGA's Marco Nunez and Austin Smith downed juniors John Banks and Ben Guthrie at the No. 2 slot give the Bulldogs the earlier advantage. The Green and Gold team of senior Adrian Vodislav and junior Ben Hoogland saw its five-match win streak come to a close at the hands of Casey Kay and Will Oliver at the No. 3 position.

No. 72-ranked Hernus Pieters defeated Tribe sophomore Aaron Chaffee, 6-2, 6-0, at No. 2 singles to push the Georgia lead to 2-0, before Austin Smith snapped Hoogland's four-match winning streak, upending the Tribe junior, 6-3, 6-4, at No. 3. No. 95-ranked Ben Wagland clinched the team victory for Georgia with a 6-0, 6-4 triumph over W&M senior Anton Andersson at the top singles slot.

The Green and Gold continues its difficult road swing when it travels to No. 18-ranked Clemson on Tuesday, March 5. The match is slated for a 2:30 p.m. start. The Tribe closes out the trip at No. 67 Georgia Tech on Thursday, March 7, at 3:30 p.m.
