STERLING, Va. - The George Washington men's tennis team defeated Fordham on Saturday to close the regular season at Trump National Golf Club on Senior Day.

The Colonials (16-6) wrap regular-season play having won seven of their last eight matches and now await seeding for next week's Atlantic 10 Championship.

GW began the day with a doubles sweep as junior Chris Reynolds and freshman Jakub Behun quickly blanked their third-flight opponents to start the match. Senior Julius Tverijonas and junior Chris Fletcher went on to win at No. 1 and the tandem of senior Fernando Sala and junior Christos Hadjigeorgiou triumphed at No. 2 as GW secured the early point.

The Colonials swiftly clinched the match in singles play, taking the top three flights. Tverijonas, Fletcher and Reynolds claimed straight-set victories at Nos. 1, 2 and 3, respectively to secure the win.

Playing in a superset format after GW clinched the match, Hadjigeorgiou downed his No. 4 foe and Sala triumphed in sixth-flight action.

Fordham took the No. 5 match to avoid the shutout.

The 2017 Atlantic 10 Championship begins on Thursday with the top four seeds earning a first-round bye. The Colonials have won the last three consecutive A-10 titles.
