Armstrong Leads Barry, 2-1, After Doubles

As you would expect between two teams that have captured the last three NCAA Division II Men's Tennis National Championships, the doubles matches between Armstrong and Barry were quite heated. The top-ranked duo of Rafael Array and Mikk Irdoja notched a quick 8-2 win over Max Wimmer and Emanuel Fraitzl at No. 1 doubles, but both of the other two doubles matches went down to the wire - and both teams that held a 6-5 lead ended up losing.

At No. 2 doubles, the duo of Marco Mokrzycki and Quentin Vachez of Barry won the last three games to win, 8-6, over Matus Mydla and Pedro Scocuglia for Barry. But the Armstrong duo of Eudaldo Bonet and Daniel Regan won the last three games at No. 3 doubles for an 8-6 win over Ollie Lemaitre and Sergio Velez.

Singles are about to begin - by the way, Columbus State finished off UC San Diego, 5-0, and Valdosta State defeated Queens (NY), 5-1, in earlier men's action.
