Barry rolls by GRU Augusta

MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Barry beat No. 21 GRU Augusta 8-1 on Thursday. The win improved the Buccaneers' record to 8-0, while GRU Augusta fell to 5-2.

Barry was tested in two of the three doubles matches, dropping the point at the No. 1 spot. Georgia Regents' No. 7-ranked duo of Victor Cabellos and Victor Guimaraes handed No. 14 Ahmed Triki and Fabian Groetsch their first loss of the season, 8-6.

At No. 2 doubles, it was another wire-to-wire battle as Barry's tandem of Leo Vivas and Romain Costamagna edged Romain Ferreira and Romain Brunie 9-8 (7-5). Barry's Ollie Lemaitre and Kevin Sielmann rolled to an 8-0 No. 3 doubles win against Joao Freitas and Arthur Andrade.

"We cannot play every day our best tennis," Barry's Renato Lombardi said after picking up the match-clinching fifth point in singles. "Actually, Ollie and Kevin played really good doubles, and Leo and Romain, with their experience got the win. For Fabu and Ahmed, sometimes we have to lose, but the next day's going to be better."

Groetsch, ranked No. 12 in NCAA Division II, was lights out in singles as he made quick work of Brunie at No. 3 singles, in a 6-1, 6-0 victory. Nico Dreer followed suit with a 6-3, 6-1 win versus Ferreira at No. 2 singles to give the Buccaneers a 4-1 lead in the match. Lombardi clinched the team victory when he beat Gustav Anderson, 6-3, 6-1 at No. 5.

"I'm excited about my tennis," Lombardi said. "I'm playing good this time, so I hope it's going to continue."

Costamagna picked up a 6-2, 6-4 win versus Guimaraes at No. 4 singles. Sielmann, ranked 41st in the country, was a 6-3, 6-4 winner against Freitas at No. 6. Triki wrapped it up with a 6-2, 6-4 victory against Cabellos at No. 1 in the longest singles match of the day.
