UNDEFEATED AMANTEGUI LEADS RAMS AT TRIBE INVITATIONAL

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Sophomore Javier Amantegui recorded an undefeated weekend to lead VCU men's tennis at the Tribe Invitational, hosted by William & Mary this past Friday through Sunday.

Amantegui dropped just one set in three matches, taking down Harvard's Andy Zhou 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 on Friday before defeating Middle Tennessee State's Ian Porteset and William & Mary's Alec Miller in straight sets on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Sophomore Ignacio Rivero Crespo also notched a win over the Tribe on Sunday, defeating Sebastian Quiros 6-1, 4-6, 6-4. Junior Arvid Noren recorded a straight-set victory over Penn State's Ben Lieb on Saturday, 7-5, 6-2.
