With the win, Clemson improves to 7-0 overall, while The Citadel falls to 0-4 this season. The Tigers are ranked 64th nationally according to the latest ITA poll.

Clemson junior, Kevin Galloway won his 10th single match of the year as he defeated David Orces of The Citadel 6-2, 6-2 at number three singles. Galloway is 10-6 overall in singles matches this season and 6-1 in dual matches.

“I was happy in the way we executed later in the match,” said Clemson Head Coach Chuck McCuen. “This was our first outdoor match this season, and we had to adjust. We learned some valuable lessons today that you can’t teach in practice, and that was–don’t take any team for granted. I don’t think we did necessarily, but at first we came out flat and The Citadel came ready to play. You have to respect every moment and every situation. You have to come ready to play at every practice and every match. As a group we showed comradely and helped each other today. I’m proud in the way we executed in our singles matches.”

Clemson will play host to Georgia State Sunday afternoon (February 21) at 3:30 p.m. at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center in the second match of the double header.
