GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The Furman men's tennis team will travel to Charleston Wednesday to take on College of Charleston.  First serve is set for 3 p.m.

Furman holds an 11-4 overall record and 4-1 SoCon mark after defeating Chattanooga, 5-2, last weekend.  Paladin sophomore Ivan Mitric is ranked 120th nationally according to the latest 2019 Oracle/ITA Division I men's singles poll, which was released two weeks ago by the organization.

Sophomore Drew Singerman is an undefeated 12-0 in singles action, while junior Jake Bhangdia is 11-4 overall and 10-3 at flight four.  Junior Jake Munns holds a 9-3 overall singles record.
