HARRISONBURG, Va., April 12, 2013 – In the final regular-season match of 2013, James Madison men’s tennis sent its six seniors out in style with a 7-0 win over Howard.  The Dukes closed out the regular season with an 8-10 record while the Bison sit at 1-10 with one match remaining.

The six JMU seniors helped complete the sweep of doubles competition beginning with an 8-1 rout of Nico Sorrel and Serbia Kendall by Ryan Pool (Melbourne, Australia/Braemar (Chattanooga)) and Malcolm Peace (Harrisonburg, Va./Anderson (IUPUI)) at No. 3 doubles.  Seniors Hugo Ramadier (Paris, France/Lycee Francais Chateabriand (Northern Arizona)) and Greg Vladimirsky (Staten Island, N.Y./Broward Virtual) dominated at No. 1 doubles with an 8-1 win of their own over Myron Davis and Spencer Mitchell before Bastien Russo (Lyon, France/Notre Dame des Minimes (Shorter)) and Florent Sentenac (Borderes, France/Lycee Theophile Gautier (Auburn Montgomery)) closed it out with an 8-2 win over Bogdon Dzakovic and Brandon Burns at No. 2 doubles.

Pool and Sentenac blanked the Bison, winning their matches 6-0, 6-0 over Mitchell at No. 1 singles and Kendall at No. 4 singles, respectively.  Pool heads into the conference tournament with an 11-6 record in duals, including wins in seven of his last 10 matches.  Sentenac concluded the regular season winning two straight matches and holding a 7-9 record at both No. 4 and No. 5 singles.

Freshman Maxi Branth (Stockholm, Sweden) clinched the win for JMU with a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Sorrel at No. 5 singles.  In his first spring, he went 5-10 across the No. 5 and No. 6 positions.

Vladimirsky notched the fifth point of the day when he dropped Davis in two sets (6-0, 6-1) at No. 2 singles.  He finished the season on a six-match win-streak to take a 10-8 record into the CAA tournament.

Freshman Robert Stirling (Caboolture, Australia/St. Columbans College) took down Dzakovic 6-1, 6-1 at No. 3 singles to close the regular season with a 10-7 record.  Russo tallied the seventh point of the day in a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Burns to complete the sweep and bring his record to 2-2 this spring.
