BOCA RATON, Fla. (April 21, 2013) – After play was halted due to rain on Saturday with the Tars up 3-0, fourth seeded Rollins held on to defeat Saint Leo on Sunday, 5-4, in the SSC Men’s Tennis Championships third place match.

The Tars jumped out to a commanding 3-0 lead after doubles play on Saturday morning. In the No. 1 match, #17 Will Kwok and Jason Alabaster defeated Aloua Adjenak and Jake Fleischer,8-5, before Malte Christesen and Robin Marchione beat Bruno Sisti and Matt Nicholson-Lewis, 8-6, in the No. 2 spot.


Adrian Di Felice and Cooper Maxwell then continued their solid play as a pair, defeating Ismail Lemtouni and Victor Lozier, 8-6, their fifth win in a row.

Play was then halted on Saturday due to rain with all six singles matches still in action.

When play resumed on Sunday, Christesen then made it 4-0 Tars, defeating Sisti in No. 2 singles, 6-4, 6-1.

The Lions then battled back, winning the next four singles matches, to tie the score 4-4 with just the No. 3 match between Marchione and Lozier remaining.

Marchione used three sets to defeat Lozier, 1-6, 7-5, 6-2 to win the match.

The Tars, who are currently rank fifth in the south region, now await the NCAA DII Men's Tennis Selection Show on Tuesday, April 23rd. The show, which will air on NCAA.com at 8:30pm ET, will reveal the teams moving on to the postseason.
