MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The No. 38 Georgia College Men's Tennis (8-5) shut out the University of Alabama-Huntsville (5-11) 5-0 Tuesday at the Centennial Center Tennis Facility.

The Bobcats controlled the three doubles bouts, despite a hotly-contested matchup in the third slot. The nation's No. 23 pairing Pedro Ecenarro (Santiago de Compostella, Spain) and Enzo Kohn (Rio de Janiero, Brazil) got the scoring started for Georgia College in the second slot, an 8-2 win over Kieran Roskell-Thomas and Guilherme Coleta. Ecenarro and Kohn improve to 8-2 with the win.

Jannik Kumbier (Neumunster, Germany) and Robin Moller (Hamburg, Germany) followed suit 8-6 in the first slot over Tim Nutz and Dylan Hall. Kumbier and Moller are now 8-3 on the year.

In third doubles, Gabriel Caron (Johns Creek) and Noah Wallace (Grayson) outlasted Noah Pring and James Caddies 9-8; the first win in doubles this season for the Bobcat pairing.

Needing two singles wins for the clinch, the first came in the second slot, where Kumbier improved to 9-2 by taking down Elliott Hopson 6-1, 6-0. No. 27 Ecenarro then closed the day with a pair of 6-1 sets against Timo Christen.

The Bobcats are back in action tomorrow, March 28 at 1 p.m., playing host to No. 7 Flagler College.
