Elon, N.C. - The Runnin' Bulldogs fell to 2-5 on the season Saturday, dropping a 7-0 decision at the hands of the Elon Phoenix.

Gardner-Webb dropped a hard-fought doubles point, as the duo of Matthew Parker/Ernest Alberch picked up the lone win for GWU on the day at #2 doubles. The pair outlasted Elon's Stefan Fortmann/Juan Madrid by a score of 8-4.

At #1 doubles, the duo of Korhan Ates/Adam Knutsson-Sundblad fell by a score of 9-7 to Elon's Cameron Silverman/Jordan Kaufman. GWU's #3 doubles pair of Stephen Martin/Joao Poli dropped a 9-7 decision to the Phoenix's Andrew Prince/Christopher Geaslen.
