WINCHESTER, Va. - The Shenandoah University men's tennis team wrapped up its 2018-19 season on a high note Sunday with a 6-3 ODAC victory over Ferrum College.

Not only does it allow Shenandoah (4-11, 2-9 ODAC) to finish the year with a victory, the win is No. 100 at Shenandoah for head coach Larry Hubbard.

Hubbard has 60 wins with the SU women and 40 with the men in nine seasons of coaching both programs.


All three seniors honored prior to the match: Kyler Apgar, Kyle Denning and Bryan Harris, earned at least one win as the Hornets took out Ferrum (4-14, 1-10) in the season finale.

Shenandoah had a 3-0 lead after doubles, with each of the seniors playing a part in those three wins, before Darian Diaz won at No. 1 singles and Apgar at No. 3 to close out the victory.

Apgar's 7-5, 6-4 triumph over Marshall Ownby was the match-clinching win.

Harris was also victorious in singles, winning 6-4, 1-6, 1-0 (10-7) at No. 2.

Diaz won in straight sets, 6-0, 6-2.


This is the squad's season finale. The 2019-20 schedule will be released later this spring.
