CLINTON, S.C. – The Presbyterian College men’s tennis team ended its home schedule with a 5-2 victory over Newberry on Monday afternoon at the Templeton Tennis Courts. The win puts PC at 9-12 overall on the season, while dropping the Wolves to 19-6 on the year.
The Blue Hose took care of things in singles though, winning five of the six matches en route to the win. Senior Alexander Lykou, playing in the final home match of his career, recorded a 6-4, 6-4 victory at No. 1 for his seventh win of the year. Fellow senior Brandon Mills pushed his season win total to 12 with a three-set victory at No. 2, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2. Senior Alejandro Bejar also capped off his career with a win in his last match in Clinton, going 6-4, 6-0 at No. 4 to get to double-digit wins for the third time in his career.
