Boiling Springs, N.C. - Gardner-Webb's men's tennis team will look to extend its current winning streak this week as the Runnin' Bulldogs take on Big South rival Campbell on Saturday, March 2 at the Webb Tennis Complex.

Saturday's match marks the first Big South match of the season for Gardner-Webb.

Entering its match against the Fighting Camels, GWU (4-3) rides a four match win streak attained after an 0-3 start to the 2013 season. The Runnin' Bulldogs have gotten wins over highly ranked Division II team Augusta State, Wofford, Brevard, and Charlotte over the past two weeks.

Gardner-Webb has gotten great run from its doubles pairings during the current win streak, especially at No. 2 and No. 3. Ernest Alberch (Torello, Spain) and Nikita Zverkov (Moscow, Russia) have combined to form a formidable tandem at the No. 2 spot, winning in each of the last four matches. The pair is 4-0 on the season.

Zverkov and Alberch have added 3-0 and 4-2 singles records as well, with all of Alberch's wins coming at No. 4 singles.

At No. 3 doubles, Benjamin Kaszás (Budapest, Hungary) and Brendan Dempsey (Dublin, Ireland) are 3-0 this season, catching fire during the last three matches for GWU. Kaszás is also 3-1 at No. 2 singles this season, and Dempsey owns a 5-1 singles record while playing predominantly at the No. 5 singles spot.

Gardner-Webb will look for further success from its deep lineup in its Big South opener against Campbell. Saturday's match is slated for a 2:00 p.m. start time.
