WASHINGTON - In a tightly contested men's tennis match the Georgetown Hoyas fell to local rival GWU earlier today, 6-1. The loss snapped an eight match winning streak for the Hoyas and is the lone home loss of the year. The Hoyas overall record now stands at 10-9 and they are 8-1 at home.

Three closely played doubles matches began the afternoon. GWU won on court three but the Hoyas evened the doubles competition after Charlie Caris (Des Moines, Iowa/Theodore Roosevelt) and Casey Distaso (The Woodlands, Texas/Edmond North) brought home an 8-5 win at one doubles. GWU seized the momentum by winning second doubles and leading the overall match 1-0.

Georgetown climbed back in the contest with an Alex Tropiano (Laurel Hollow, N.Y./Cold Spring Harbor) straight set victory on court six, 6-0, 6-3. Three other singles matches were all close calls for the Hoyas but GU could not squeeze out another triumph.

Georgetown stays home for its final two dual matches of the season. On Wednesday, April 10, the Hoyas host UMBC at 2 p.m. and then on Thursday, April 11, GU takes on George Mason also at 2 p.m.
