ROME, Ga. — The 2022 USA South Men’s Tennis Tournament concluded this weekend with East Division top-seed N.C.

The Battling Bishops swept East Division top-seeded Averett, 5-0, in Rome, Georgia, at the Rome Tennis Center at Berry College. 

N.C. Wesleyan started the match strong by taking a 3-0 lead after doubles play led by 8-2 wins from the top doubles team of senior Jhonny Acosta and freshman Diego Segovia and the #2 team of seniors Max Robinson and Roberto Puig while the team of senior JP Vallejo and John Falke also won 8-6 in the third position.

In singles, N.C. Wesleyan recevied wins from John Falke at the number two position 6-0, 6-4 and Segovia at the number-six position 6-2, 4-1 before his opponent retired to secure the championship.
