The Men’s Tennis team lost in their final dual-match of the season, 4-3 to Drew University.
Senior captain Marc Hill was victorious for the Lions in first singles, defeating Drew’s JD Spina 6-4, 6-0. The win gave Hill a 13-3 record for the year in dual-matches.
Also victorious for the Lions in singles was freshman Kenneth Tsui with a 7-6, 6-1 win. Unfortunately for the Lions, Drew won the other four singles matches, accounting for the points needed to win the match.
On the positive side for the Lions, all three doubles teams were victorious. Hill and junior Bryan Hanley won 8-5 in first doubles, sophomores Neeraj Pilly and Victor Lai won in second doubles 9-7 and Tsui teamed with freshman Rishi Patel for an 8-4 win in third doubles.
Drew swept the second through fifth singles matches.
Third singles Drew’s Anthony Carreras defeated Pilly 6-0, 5-7, 7-6 (4) and fourth singles Drew’s Aaron McCormick defeated Lai in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.
In addition, Hill and Hanley improve to 12-1 in dual matches for the year.
With the loss, the Lions end the season with an 8-8 record.
The NCAA championships are scheduled for next weekend. With his 13-3 record, Hill looks to have a shot at a bid.
