Junior Charles Martin-Lecamp pushed his season mark to 8-7 in singles play, but he was the lone team point for Charlotte in a 6-1 home defeat to Atlantic 10 Conference opponent George Washington Friday afternoon at the Halton-Wagner Complex in men's tennis action. Charlotte slips to 3-7 on the season, while GW improves to 5-4.
Martin-Lecamp took down Ugur Atalay in the top singles spot in straight sets (7-5, 6-2) for the win. He was won his last two singles matches and is 4-3 playing at number one this spring.
Despite our good effort today, we will have to execute at a higher level in order to beat a GW team that was picked to win the conference," said Charlotte head coach Billy Boykin. "We were competitive in all three doubles matches and had chances in some of the singles matches as well. I still feel that our best tennis is ahead of us. Charly is playing very well right now and is leading the way for us."
Charlotte continues the home stand with a 1 p.m. Sunday match against Liberty.
