Bluefield, WV- The Big Blues won another Regional match, this time against Fairmont State in a 7-2 decision.
Coach Belt went with a different doubles line-up against Fairmont State, dropping Luca Okernahl to the #3 doubles and bumping Ignacio Pulido and Anthony Braem up one. Platon Gud/Anthony Braem and Giorgi Datashvili/Luca Ockernahl each took care of their opponents 8-3. Alexandr Rudenco/ Ignacio Pulido had a much tougher time and came up just short losing 9-7.
