NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The Richmond men’s tennis team has earned the No. 4 seed in the 36th annual Atlantic 10 Conference Championship, starting Thursday, April 17 at the Boar’s Head Sports Club in Charlottesville, Va.

The Spiders will receive a first-round bye and will kick off Friday’s quarterfinal round with a 10 a.m. start against No. 5-seed George Mason.

Richmond is coming off a 4-3 victory over the Patriots in Fairfax, Va., last Friday. The Spiders secured the win with the help of the doubles point and Richmond singles matches from redshirt-junior Ethan Dunbar, freshman Jacob Dunbar and freshman Alex Hahn.

Two-time All-Conference First Team selection, Ethan Dunbar, leads the Spiders at the No. 1 spot as he enters his third-straight championship. The redshirt-junior holds a 16-6 record on court one, while freshman Jacob Dunbar enters his first A-10 Championship with only dropping one match this spring to hold a school-record 21-1 spring mark.

The A-10 Men’s Tennis Championship features a four-day, single-elimination format. The winner of the Championship will receive the Conference’s automatic bid to compete in the NCAA Tournament. Competition begins Thursday with matches starting at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. through Saturday. Sunday’s championship will begin at 10 a.m.
