CHARLOTTE – Gardner-Webb men's tennis wrapped up its fall season over the weekend, competing at the 2016 Charlotte 49ers Fall Tournament for three days.
GWU had six men competing in singles competition, which covered five different brackets.
Maximillian Scholl, the reigning Big South Conference Freshman of the Year, paced the Runnin' Bulldogs with a third-place finish in his bracket and three wins in the event.
"Our conference is so good and deep, but we will be one of the favorites to compete for the championship this spring, because of Max [Scholl] and our depth," said head coach Mike Griffith. "For us to do really well we need our talented freshmen to step up. They have the ability and desire. Can they show up every day from January through March in the cold and wind? It should be a fun and exciting ride."
Jeremiah Hansen went 2-2 in his bracket, topping Bluefield's Rodrigo Huarachi (6-2, 6-2) and coming back to beat UNC Asheville's Reid Dillon (6-2, 6-4) in the consolation draw.
Jacob Wall bounced back from a first round defeat to easily defeat Bluefield's Conor Whyte in his consolation draw (6-2, 6-1).
