BELMONT, N.C. – The Piedmont men’s tennis team concluded its fall slate this past weekend, competing in the Belmont Abbey Hidden Duals in Belmont, North Carolina.

The Lions took on Belmont Abbey, Pfeiffer, Queens, and Johnson & Wales (NC) in mini-dual matches, prevailing in three and dropping just one.

Sophomore Yannick Wassmer Navarro closed out his fall season in style, going 2-0 in singles action while also picking up a pair of doubles victories.

Overall, the Lions went 6-6 in singles competition with five different players picking up victories.

Piedmont had more success in doubles, going 5-3 over the two days. Senior Bryce VanOrder led the team, winning all three of his doubles matches, taking one each with Kody Dills, Wassmer Navarro, and freshman Brent Sherman.

The Lions delivered strong performances in the clutch, winning all three of their singles matches that went to third-set match tiebreakers. Wassmer Navarro, VanOrder and Silas Sandles each outlasted their opponents late.

The event concludes Piedmont’s fall season. The Lions are scheduled to begin the spring campaign on Saturday, Feb. 10 at the Transylvania Invitational.
