Appalachian State University men's tennis (8-6) got back on the winning track with a 4-1 triumph over Bethune-Cookman on Wednesday afternoon in Daytona Beach.
Appalachian snaps a season-long three-match skid while it's the third road win of the season. The Mountaineers recorded the doubles point, and three of the four finished singles matches to capture the win.
Claiming their first win as a tandem was Alex Brea (Charlotte, N.C./Providence Day) and Alexander Free (Johns Creek, Ga./James Madison) in the early goings of the doubles portion, downing Phillip Lynch and David Ocampo, 6-3. Clinching the point to give App a 1-0 edge was Scott Webster (Perth, Australia/Scotch College) and Milo Bargeron (Chislehurst, England/Bullerswood). The now 8-3 pairing defeated Victor Bravo and Jose Plazas, 6-3, to hand App the momentum it needed for singles.
Bargeron continued his solid outing on the day and gave the Mountaineers a 2-0 advantage with a straight-set, 6-4, 6-0 triumph over Ocampo as the No. 3 in the lineup. Scott secured his fifth straight singles win when he downed Bravo, 6-2, 6-3, and improved to 9-3 on the season. Campbell Stone (Raleigh, N.C./Needham B. Broughton) was the next to finish but fell to Juan Navarro, 6-1, 6-4. The Wildcats cut the deficit to 3-1, but Alex Pavkovich (Queensland, Australia/Mansfield State) had other plans when he clinched the match, 6-2, 6-4, to earn his eighth win of the season. The sophomore for the Black and Gold surpassed last season's win total and is boasting a career-high eight wins and counting.
Ben Webster (Perth, Australia/Scotch College) fell in the first set to Plazas, 2-6, before forcing a third frame with a 6-2, but the match was unfinished. Blake Carter's (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield) match went unfinished as well. Carter was on his way to a seventh win as he was ahead, 7-6 (7-0), 3-1.
Pavkovich and Ben's doubles match went unfinished as well with a 5-4 lead over Navarro and Juan Diego Ruiz.
The Mountaineers are now 46-35 (.568) in singles and 21-15 (.586) in doubles action.
Appalachian will return to action on Friday, March 16 against College of Charleston at 2 p.m.

Appalachian State University women's basketball pushed past Arkansas State, 79-68, in the first round of the 2018 Sun Belt Championship held in New Orleans at Lakefront Arena.
The young Mountaineer squad, which many of them were playing in their first-ever Sun Belt Tournament game, looked like they've been in the spotlight before of a big postseason contest.
Appalachian posted four different players in double figures with LaPresha Stanley (Rockledge, Fla./Rockledge) pouring in a game and career-high 27 points on 8-of-17 shooting and an even more impressive 10-for-11 outing from the charity stripe. Stanley also added six rebounds and two assists. Bayley Plummer (Thomasville, N.C./East Davidson) turned in a monster performance tying her career high of 18 points and a game-best 19 rebounds. The sophomore center stuffed the stat sheet tying personal bests in assists with four and being an inside force with a game-best five blocks.
Tierra Wilson (Winston-Salem, N.C./R.J. Reynolds) scored 16 points with four boards and two helpers. The freshmen led the team with three trifectas including two in the final frame that led to 10 points in the stanza. Nicola Mathews rounded out the leading scorers with 12 points and paced the way with six assists.
Appalachian dominated the glass, 50-32, and for a second straight game corralled 20 offensive rebounds for 17 second-chance points.
Arkansas State started the game with an 11-7 start in the first 4:12 of the game until free throws by Lainey Gosnell (Demorest, Ga./Habersham Central) began an 8-2 stretch that pushed the Mountaineers to a 15-14 first quarter lead. Plummer made a layup that tied up the frame before Mathews, and another bucket from Plummer gave App the edge.
In the second quarter, A-State claimed a 22-19 lead with 7:22 left in the half after hitting four of its first seven shots. Appalachian responded by outscoring the Red Wolves, 19-7 the rest of the way including a 6-for-8 stretch over the final 3:49 of the half to give App a 38-29 advantage. Armani Hampton (Winston-Salem, N.C./Atkins) scored a layup before Stanley scored five straight points to end the first stanza for the nine-point lead at the break. Appalachian's defense dug in during the run holding A-State to a 1-for-8 stretch.
Coming out the break, Mathews hit a jumper on the first possession that extended the lead to double-digits, 40-29. However, the Red Wolves went on a big run that turned the 11-point deficit to a 55-48 lead for Arkansas State late in the third quarter. A-State went on a 19-4 burst highlighted by 73.3 percent shooting to outscore App, 26-13. Three straight free throws by Stanley and Plummer sliced the deficit to four, 55-51.
Appalachian showed composure when down early in the quarter piecing together a 19-3 run over six minutes to take a commanding 77-65 lead with a minute left in the game. Mathews' field goal started the take over before Plummer pin-pointed a skip pass to Wilson for one of her two 3-pointers that gave the Black and Gold the lead for good. After turning the ball over 10 times in the third quarter, the Mountaineers did an excellent job with zero miscues on offense.
After Plummer and Stanley hit back-to-back layups to extend the lead to four, 66-62, Payton Tennison hit a trifecta to bring the edge to one, 66-65. Plummer hit a layup on the ensuing end and then Stanley opened the gate for App to pull away with a timely 3-pointer for the six-point lead, 71-65, with 2:46 left in the game. Another field goal by Mathews and four consecutive free throws by Wilson iced the game, giving the Black and Gold the win in the first round for the second straight season.
App shot just 4-for-11 from outside the arc, but hit a season-high 21 free throws going 21-for-26 (.808) from the free throw line.
The Mountaineers will face the top-seeded Little Rock Trojans on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. (ET) on ESPN3 at Lakefront Arena in the quarterfinal round.
- Plummer posted her second game of the season with at least 15 points and 15 rebounds (16 pts/18 rebs. at Marshall)

Appalachian State junior Randall Diabe, who wrestles in the 197-pound division, received an at-large bid to the NCAA Championships on Tuesday afternoon.
Diabe will join App State automatic qualifiers Forrest Przybysz (174 pounds), Irvin Enriquez (141) and Alan Clothier (184) in Cleveland, where the championships will be held from March 15-17. Przybysz and Enriquez captured Southern Conference championships for the title-winning Mountaineers on Saturday, and Clothier earned the league's second automatic berth from his weight class.
With 33 wrestlers filling every bracket at the NCAA Championships, there were five at-large spots available for the 197-pound wrestlers who didn't qualify automatically. The at-large selections were based on head-to-head competition, quality wins, coaches' ranking, results against common opponents, RPI, qualifying event placement and winning percentage.
In February, Diabe was ranked No. 27 in his weight class by the RPI and No. 32 by the NCAA Division I Wrestling Coaches' Panel.
He is 19-7 this season after posting a SoCon dual record of 7-0 and going 3-1 during a third-place showing at the SoCon Championships. His perfect run through the league included a victory against highly ranked Chattanooga opponent Scottie Boykin, and Diabe also had nonconference wins of note against wrestlers from Oklahoma, Duke and Ohio.

On the year, Grigg is 3-0 with a 2.49 earned run average and 28 strikeouts.

Appalachian State softball swept the Norfolk State Spartans with two wins, bringing their win streak to four games. The last time the Mountaineers had a four-game win streak was Feb. 6 – March 4, 2017.
Game One (W, 7-1)
Keri White led off the first inning with a hit dropped in shallow right field. White was the first run across the plate for the Mountaineers on a passed ball with two outs after advancing to third base on a sacrifice bunt from Sidney Russell and a groundout from Alisha Josey.
Norfolk State tied up the score at 1-1 with a solo home run from Jazzmaine Hammond in the bottom of the second inning.
In the fourth inning, Baylee Morton drew a walk and Ally Walters reached on a fielder's choice to put Gabby Buruato, pinch runner for Morton, in scoring position. Megan Walker singled to left field before Avery Wheatley pounded a single up the middle to score Walters, the second run for the Mountaineers.
The Mountaineers scored another five runs in the top of the seventh inning. A. Josey drove in both runners, Avery Wheatley and Sidney Russell, with a double to the left field fence to bring the score 4-1. Jenny Dodd drew a walk before Baylee Morton crushed a three-run home run over the left field fence.
Game Two (W, 6-3)
The Apps' first run came in the top of the third inning. Walker reached first base on an error by the second baseman but ran into an out at second base on a fielder's choice for Wheatley. White singled through the right side to bring Wheatley around to third base. White stole second base to put both runners in scoring position. On a throw to first base to get Laura Sales out, Wheatley scored.
Norfolk State scored in the bottom of the third inning after two walks and a fielding error by Wheatley at shortstop.
The Mountaineer offense exploded in the eighth inning. The Apps scored five runs on four hits in an international tiebreaker with Walker placed on second base to start the inning. Kayla Fredendall pinch hit for Laura Sales and stepped up big for the Mountaineers, hitting a two-RBI single to right field. Fredendall's hit sparked a single from A. Josey up the middle followed by a three-run homer from Dodd, her fourth of the season and fourth in three games.
Norfolk State scored two in the bottom of the eighth inning off of a double to right field and a single to left center, but it was not enough to overcome the Mountaineers.
Both Julianna Roupas and Katie Williford ended five straight innings striking out the batters for the final outs. Roupas and Williford combined only allowed three hits from the Spartans, throwing a no-hitter through six innings and the first two outs of the seventh. Williford had five strikeouts, and Roupas had two for seven total. Williford earned the win throwing 5-2/3 innings for the Mountaineers.
