BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. - The Gardner-Webb men's tennis team won every match it took part in Friday afternoon, earning a 7-0 sweep of visiting Brevard College.

GWU kept the momentum rolling at the onset of singles action, as Parker blanked Liell, 6-0, 6-0, at the No. 6 position, which was quickly followed at the No. 4 spot as Joao Poli blanked Giovanolli, 6-0, 6-0.

The overall match victory for the Runnin' Bulldogs was determined at the No. 2 position as Kaszás downed Taggart, 6-1, 6-0, followed by Jonathan Walker defeating Finch, 6-1, 6-1, at the No. 5 spot, as well as straight-set wins at the No. 3 spot by Zverkov over Northam, 6-1, 6-2, and at the No. 1 spot by Roman Piftor over Kloster, 6-4, 6-2.
