Men’s Tennis Begins ACC Play at Wake Forest

March 4, 1999

TALLAHASSEE, FL. — The Seminoles begin ACC play on the road against the Deamon Deacons of Wake Forest. FSU is 7-3 this season, while Wake Forest is 2-4. Last year, Florida State beat Wake Forest 5-2. This year, Wake is led by Myles Clouston the 45th ranked player in the country. Clouston plays No.1 for the Deamon Deacons and is 2-2 so far this dual match season.

Florida State is led by the nation’s 96th ranked player, Ty Braswell. Braswell is 6-4 in dual match play this year. Sophomore Chad Mooney leads the team in victories with nine. Mooney is 9-1 this spring and undefeated at the No.5 position. Senior Yvo Niks is 8-2 on the season and teams with junior Mike Ingham to form the No.2 doubles team for FSU. Ingham and Niks are 6-2 this season. The No.1 team consists of Braswell and fellow senior Davidson Kozlowski. They are 7-2 and looking to break into the rankings with a win against Wake’s Clouston and Raul Munoz, the nation’s 20th ranked team.

Florida State heads into ACC play after a disappointing loss to Florida on Wednesday. The lone winners for FSU were Ingham and Mooney, and the relatively young duo of freshman Noah Schnell and sophomore Chad Mooney. Schnell and Mooney have only played three matches as partners and have won two of them at No.3.

The men return home after matches with Wake Forest, Maryland, and Duke for a match with Virginia on March 15th, at 3:30pm.
