GETTYSBURG, PA.- The Catholic University men's tennis team struggled Thursday against the Bullets of Gettysburg College in a match that was called early due to inclement weather.  The Cards made the trip to Pennsylvania coming off a tough loss to Drew University Saturday and looked to get back on track.  However, the Bullets proved to be to much for the Cards as they are now (6-5) and currently have a record of (2-1) in Conference play.

CUA was not able to pick up a doubles competition victory, but there was a few bright spots on this rainy afternoon.  Seniors Andrew Kracht (Sellersville, Pa./Pennridge) and John Dillon(River Forest, Ill./Fenwick) managed to pick up two of CUA three points with decisive victories.  Dillon managed to pull through in three sets 4-6, 6-3, 10-7, and Kracht won convincingly in two 6-4, 7-6.

The Cardinals look to make a statement in the Landmark as they face four conferences opens over the next three weeks leading up to the conference championships.  CUA is currently holding the fourth and final playoff spot and will face Juniata College Sunday April 6th at the DuFour Center.
