ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Austin Jones (So., Dallas, Texas) notched a straight-set win for the Navy men's tennis team Friday on the opening day of the Navy National All-Conference Invitational on the USNA Tennis Courts.

Jones posted a 6-4, 6-1 win at No. 2 singles over Christian Lee of Arkansas. The win by Jones boosts his team-best record to 5-1 this fall.

"I am very happy with the way Austin played today," said Navy head coach John Officer. "He worked very hard all summer on his game. He did everything well today."

Jones recorded the lone victory on the day for the Mids, who faced a lineup of players from both Arkansas and Penn State.

"We battled well at Nos. 5 and 6 singles," said Officer. "Those were close matches, but we came up short in them. We were just not in gear at Nos. 3 and 4 singles, but we will be strong in them. We have to come out with more energy in doubles."

The Mids will return to the courts Saturday at 9 a.m. to play Indiana, then will face Princeton Sunday at 2 p.m.
