Two Conference Titles (1974, 1987)
Colonels shutout Randolph, win 5-0
LYNCHBURG, Va. – Centre men's tennis righted the ship Tuesday afternoon, defeating Randolph by a lopsided 5-0 margin inside the Crosswhite Athletics Club.
The Colonels snap a small two-match skid with the victory, improving to 4-7 overall while earning their first win of their Virginia trip. The Wildcats fall to a 1-4 record.
Playing to decision and needing only two more team points, the Colonels swiftly took care of business in singles action.
Middleton dropped Crutcher, 6-1, 6-0, in the No. 1 singles bout to put Centre on the brink with four team points.
Slone closed the match with a solid 6-1, 6-1 victory against Ellis in No. 2 singles, securing wins in doubles and singles for the second match in a row.
Centre next meets Randolph-Macon (5-1) at 3:30 p.m. ET Thursday in Ashland, Va.
