ORLANDO, Fla. - - The University of Louisville men's tennis team wrapped up the Orlando Invitational on a positive note with four wins on the final day of the tournament.
"It was a good final day for us, winning most of our matches against very good competition," said head coach Rex Ecarma. "What I liked the most is that our players got better each day and their fitness held up. This group of players are starting to really bond as a unit and it is nice to see. The seniors have been educating the freshmen in the `Louisville Tennis Way.' The new players have really bought into it. We accomplished a lot and identified areas that need to improve. Today's MVPs were Albert Wagner and Sebastian Stiefelmeyer."
The Cardinals will open dual match play on Jan. 19 when they play host to Austin Peay and Xavier at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center.
