Jags Fall In Final Four

AUGUSTA, Ga. – West Florida, the second-ranked team in the nation, blanked Augusta State 5-0 Friday afternoon in the Final Four of the NCAA Men's Tennis Championships at EP Tom Sawyer State Park in Louisville, Ky.

The loss brought the winningest season in school history to an end at 19-10. The Jaguars were making their first-ever trip to the NCAA Championships and their first-ever appearance in the National Semifinals.

The 21st-ranked Jaguars earned a berth in the Final Four earlier in the day with a thrilling 5-4, come-from behind victory over No. 9 Grand Canyon. ASU defeated Drury on Thursday, 5-4, to advance to the Elite Eight.

Senior Henrique Boturao won the clinching point in each of the first two matches vs. Drury and Grand Canyon.

The match marked the final career appearance in a Jaguar uniform for Boturao and fellow seniors Bernardo Fernandes and Jenner Stevenson.
