MARYVILLE, Tenn. – The Brevard College Tornados Men's Tennis team (6-8, 4-4 USAS) earned its fourth-straight match victory on Wednesday afternoon after defeating the Maryville College Scots (0-13, 0-9 USAS) by a final score of 7-2 in a USA South Conference road match in Maryville, Tennessee.

All four of BC's consecutive match victories have come against USA South competition.

The Tornados won the five singles matches that BC student-athletes participated in without dropping a single game. Tom Mittring, Tim Hengst, Tyler Frazee, Nathan Boepple, and Andrew Ingram dominated singles play, defeating Maryville, 6-0, 6-0, in all five singles matches.

Mittring, the now three-time USA South Men's Tennis Player of the Week, extended his singles win streak to 22 matches. Mittring leads the USA South in singles wins (12) and number-one singles wins (12).

With their singles wins on Wednesday, both Hengst and Frazee extend their respective singles win streaks to 10 matches. Both hold a commanding 8-0 singles record in USA South play, and are 11-3 overall in singles play in 2018-19.

Boepple (no. 4 singles) and Ingram (no. 5 singles) cruised to singles sweeps to round out singles action.

In doubles play, the pairings of Mittring/Hengst and Frazee/Ingram took no. 1 and no. 2 doubles to earn BC its 7-2 victory. Mittring and Hengst improve to 9-2 in 2018-19 as a doubles pairing, including a 5-1 record in conference doubles play. Mittring and Hengst's eight doubles wins are the most in the USA South at the number-one line.

Wednesday's win gave BC its sixth victory of 2018-19, which matches its win total from last season.

The Tornados return to action at the McCoy Tennis Complex on Saturday, April 6 at 2 p.m. as they host Covenant College (6-6, 6-2 USAS) for Senior Day.
