LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Sunday the Xavier men’s tennis team wrapped up a strong performance at the 2010 ITA Ohio Valley Regional. In consolation singles play, sophomore Brandon MacDonald earned a win over IUPUI’s Taylor Tunis.

"We finished up our fall season playing some pretty competitive tennis over the last several days,” said XU head coach Eric Toth. “I felt early in the tournament, although the effort was good, we squandered some opportunities to advance some of our guys further, especially in doubles. But, Bobby Deye, Jimmy Roebker, and Richard Canelas played some really good singles matches on both Friday and Saturday that will give them a lot more confidence as we head into our off-season. We look forward to working on what we need to over the next couple of months to help us make the improvements needed so we are ready to compete against a most challenging schedule in January."

Also in singles consolation play freshman Mesa Mei fell 6-4, 7-6 and Richard Canelas dropped a 6-3, 6-4 decision.

Xavier will take a much-needed break before the first serve of the 2011 dual match season on January 23 at Kentucky.
