MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College Men's Tennis team (6-3) made short work of Concord University (0-2) Wednesday, tallying a shutout in non-conference action at the Centennial Center Tennis Facility. The shutout was the fourth this season for the Bobcat men.

In first doubles, Jannik Kumbier (Neumunster, Germany) and Robin Moller (Hamburg, Germany) followed suit with an 8-0 finish of their own, topping Adam Kotana and Alfonso Jimenez.

Sophomore Nathan Connelly (McDonough) clinched the team win in fifth singles, shutting out Adam Tolliver 6-0, 6-0. Moller then beat Jimenez via shutout on the second line. Kumbier beat Kotana again in singles play with a 6-1, 6-0 matchup.

Moller battled Sada in the third slot for a 6-4 first set, then settled in to shut out his opponent in the second. The day came to a close with a win from Cole Heller (Woodstock) as the Bobcat newcomer beat Lietor 6-1, 6-0. Moller, Kumbier and Kohn are all tied for the team lead with seven wins, Moller owning a 7-1 mark.
