Hilton Head Island, S.C. -- The University of Lynchburg men's tennis team suffered its second loss of the season Tuesday morning, an 8-1 decision to Millikin at the Hilton Head Beach & Tennis Club.

Lynchburg (4-2) falls to 1-2 this week at Hilton Head's Spring Tennis Fest.

Senior Nick Savino (Bristol, Conn.) and sophomore Daniel Christian (Jamestown, N.C.) earned the Hornets' lone point at the No. 2 doubles spot, winning a tiebreak to take the match.

Christian and Savino also fared best on the singles side for Lynchburg, both dropping tight matches in a tiebreaker third set.

Christian fell at No. 3, 3-6, 6-4 (7), to Millikin's Greg Schwoeppe, while Savino couldn't quite get over at No. 4, falling to Logan Bennett, 6-4, 5-7 (7).
