WINCHESTER, Va. - The Shenandoah University men's tennis team opened up its 2019 season with a 5-3 non-league victory over PSU-Altoona late Saturday night.

Playing indoors at Winchester Country Club, Shenandoah (1-0) took a 2-1 lead after doubles before clinching with wins at Nos. 1, 2 and 4 singles.


Darian Diaz and Bryan Harris were both double winners for SU while Brenton Baugh had the match-clinching win. He defeated Jaydan Jacobs 6-1, 6-2 at No. 4 singles to finish off the victory over the Lions (0-3).

The match at No. 6 singles was abandoned due to time constraints.
