WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Georgia State men’s tennis concluded its fall tournament schedule in the Wake Forest Invitational this weekend, ending the fall with plenty of success to build upon in the spring.
The Panthers were led by sophomore Steven Huynh, who finished the weekend 3-1 overall and won the consolation bracket in singles play. It was Huynh’s best performance of the fall, nearly doubling his win-count from his first two tournaments this semester.
Huynh dropped a close three-set match to Diego Losada of Wofford in Friday’s opening round but bounced back by winning his next three to win the consolation bracket. He defeated Eric Whisnant of UNCG and Tayte Dupree of Wake Forest in dominant fashion, then knocked off Bryce Keim of Wofford in the consolation final 6-3, 7-6(5).
Also competing for GSU was Jack MacFarlane, who ended the weekend 1-2. The Ruislip, England, native won his first match over Bastien Huon of Campbell 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 before falling in his next two. MacFarlane and Huynh took the court together for doubles play, but were unable to come away with a win after three matches.
Georgia State ended the fall with an 94-66 overall record and will look to carry its momentum in the 2019 spring season after Sun Belt Co-Coach of the Year Jonathan Wolff led GSU to the No. 1 seed in the 2018 conference tournament. The Panthers begin the 2019 spring schedule with the LSU Jerry Simmons Invitational on Jan. 26-27 in Baton Rouge, La.
