After cruising in the first two rounds of the tournament,

the Musketeers fell to George Washington University 4-3 in the third straight time the two have met in the championship match. This year also marked Xavier's sixth straight appearance in the championship match. The Musketeers opened the A-10 Tournament with 4-0 victories over the University of Dayton and Richmond University. Xavier started the match off strong by earning the doubles point behind victories at the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles matches. In

singles play, the Musketeers scored two more victories but were unable to clinch the game-winning fourth point. Sophomore Jimmy Roebker won in straight sets in the No. 1 singles match (6-4, 7-6). Junior Brandon MacDonald also secured a victory, winning in straight sets in the No. 4 singles match (6-2, 6-3). Head coach Eric Toth was extremely proud of the effort put forth by his team during their run to the finals. "We worked so hard to get in position to win a championship," Toth said. "We played exceptional tennis today and [the title] was there for the taking." "I believe our guys are a resilient bunch and am confident it

will fuel the fire for another title run next season," Toth said.
