ROCK HILL, S.C. – Appalachian State University men's tennis picked up 17 total wins at the Winthrop Intercollegiate in its last action of the fall season.

The Mountaineers finished 14-9 in singles play and 3-6 in doubles as four different players picked up at least two wins each in singles play.

Oliver Casey and Zach Bost led the way as both players finished 3-1 in singles action. Bost advanced to the semifinal round of the main draw in his bracket while Casey rebounded from a slow start to win three-straight en route to an appearance in the finals of the consolation round.

Eric Greene and Matt Saltsgaver each finished 2-2 on the weekend while Robert Jenkins, Sebastien King and Jan-Willem Kleynhans each finished 1-1. Steve Lake rounded out the Mountaineer lineup with a 1-2 record.

Casey's run to the consolation championship match came on the strength of three, straight-set decisions over Nick Iannuzzi of UAB (6-1, 6-2) NJIT's Andres Alban (6-1, 6-4) and Dylan Comerford of Winthrop (6-1, 6-1). Bost picked up wins over Presbyterian's Gonzalo Asis (6-2, 6-2), Conner Knox of ETSU (6-1, 6-2) and UNC Asheville's John Schubel (7-5, 6-4).

Greene notched victories over UNCA's Reid Dillon (6-4, 7-5) and Jonathan Walker of Gardner-Webb (3-6, 6-2, 10-8) while Saltsgaver picked up wins against David Durham of Kennesaw State (7-5, 6-2) and NJIT's Nicolas Cameron (6-1, 7-5).

Jenkins defeated Tennessee Tech's Alvaro Cintas (7-6, 7-5), King took down UNCA's Alex Croker (6-2, 6-0), Kleynhans defeated KSU's Jorge Wilson (6-2, 2-6, 1-0 (10)) and Lake logged a victory against GWU's Nick Lofrumento (6-1, 6-3).

Appalachian's run in doubles play was highlighted by victories from the duos of Lake/Casey, Kleynhans/Jenkins and Greene/Saltsgaver.

The Mountaineers will take the next several months to prepare for their spring championship season, which begins at UNC Wilmington on Jan. 19.
