Alice Lloyd College vs. UVA Wise
The Alice Lloyd College Men’s Tennis squad, under the direction of Coach Dustan Turner, opened their season against a challenging foe, the UVA Wise Cavaliers, on March 25, 2015. The young Eagles fought hard but fell to the NCAA Division 2 opponent, 9-0. Freshman Dakota Boggs played a grueling game before dropping his match. “We expect great things to come from him during this tennis season,” said Coach Turner. The Eagles won games in both #2 and #3 Doubles with the teams of Kyler Hazelette and Caleb Lofton and Zach Crawford and Tyler Kilburn
This is the third year of the men’s tennis at ALC. While still in the development stage of building this program, the young Eagles are hopeful that strong opposition will help prepare them for the upcoming conference season.
