The men's tennis team swept the Hartford Hawks at home on Thursday, Sept. 20 in an impressive 7-0 victory.
In doubles, Jacob Spreyer alongside Wayne Harrell defeated the first tandem for the Hawks 8-4. Wei Lin and Zac McEntee beat the Hawks with a tremendous 8-0. Captain Ryan Carr and Mark Hosang defeated Hartford 8-3.
In singles play, sophomore Jacob Spreyer defeated Hawk Jordan Badanko in a tough-fought match. Spreyer gained the first set 6-7, dropped the second set 6-4 then took the match 10-8 in a tight tiebreaker.
"It was a good first match as a team,” said Spreyer after his match. “We played well from top to bottom and our youngsters are really looking good. My match was tough. I wasn't playing my best tennis, but when you can't direct the wind, you just have to adjust the sails and keep fighting."
Also playing singles were Lin, Carr, Harrell, Teddy Margles and Andrew Ginzberg, all sailing smoothly through their matches with determination.
"We have four new freshman and a sophomore transfer, so half of the team is new players,” said Coach Glenn Marshall. “All of the new players are very good players, and it will bring a tremendous amount of depth to our team."
