The Charlotte 49ers men's tennis program won its fifth-place match Sunday 4-0 over fifth-seeded St. Bonaventure to conclude the 2011 season at the Atlantic 10 Conference Championships. After weather forced the movement of matches in and around the area, the 49ers and Bonnies got great weather to finish the weekend, and were able to play outdoors. After playing past midnight the night before, the 49ers got up early to get the victory and finish the season 8-16.  Charlotte avenged an earlier 4-3 loss to the Bonnie, which took place way back on February 18.

The 49ers won the doubles with wins at one and three. Charlotte's top doubles pair of junior Charles Martin-Lecamp and senior Moritz Bernhoerster took an 8-1 victory, and the number-three doubles pair of seniors Michael Anders and Chris Huynh won 8-6 to clinch the opening point of the match.

Martin-Lecamp and Bernhoerster finished the season 14-8 together, winning 12 doubles matches in the spring together. Anders and Huynh were 7-5 together for the season.

In singles play, the Niners secured wins at six, one and two to win the match overall. Victor Theorin got his first win of the weekend in straight sets, 6-0, 6-1 at six before Martin-Lecamp was successful at number one 6-4, 6-4. The match was decided on the win by Anders at number two, 7-5, 7-5.

Martin-Lecamp finishes the season as the team's top singles winner, with 14 on the season. Anders finished in a tie for second with his 13th singles win. Theorin was one back in fourth on the squad this season with 12 singles wins.

The 49ers finished 3-1 at the tournament, finishing the season with two straight wins.
