WINSTON-SALEM, NC - The Winston-Salem State Rams (1-5) struggled to a tough 9-0 loss to the King College Tornado, Sunday morning. The loss was a tough one for the Rams who struggled against a strong King College team that has been solid this season.
"The men are working hard, but we still have some improvements to make," WSSU head tennis coach John Martin said. "I feel like we've been in a lot of these matches, but the results are going our way. I believe our hard work will pay off in the long run."
The Rams struggles early, falling in all three doubles matches. The Rams fell 8-2 in the first and second doubles matches while the third doubles match was retired due to an injury to senior Ian Hunter. The Rams' struggles continued in singles play. WSSU senior Maximilian Glodde had the best singles match of the day in the fourth position with 6-4, 7-5 loss.
The loss was the fourth straight for the Rams, but the team will get another chance to bounce back next Sunday when the team hosts the North Carolina Central Eagles in a noon match.
