CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Bucknell continued its tough schedule to open the season with a 7-0 loss to Miami at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center on Sunday. The Bison dropped to 1-3, with two of the losses coming to ACC opponents.

The Bison played the Hurricanes for the second time in program history. The teams first played in 1958.

Senior Daniel Wright played well against the top player on a team from a Power Five Conference. On court one, he dropped the first set 6-1, but nearly forced a third set before falling 6-4 in the second.

Two Bucknell players matched up against nationally-ranked opponents. Andrei Vitiuc fell to No. 99 Adria Soriano on court two, while Max Kane lost to No. 101 Bojan Jankulovski on court three.

The Bison will play matches against Saint Francis, Butler, Youngstown State, and Cleveland State next weekend.
