On Saturday, March 30, the men’s tennis team traveled to Ramapo College in a conference match.

The team came out on top, sweeping the match 9-0 and increasing its record to 9-1 while the women had the week off.

The teammates truly outperformed themselves and won every singles and doubles match.

The team of senior Mitchel Sanders and junior Thomas Wright won the match 8-4. Right behind them was the team of freshman Matthew Michibata and junior Gokul Murugesan, which swept its match 8-1.

Senior Matt Puig and sophomore Andrew Mok also swept their doubles match 8-2 to finish out the teams’ doubles sets.

In singles matches, all players won their respective matches in two sets. Sanders took his match 6-1 and 6-3, while Michibata followed 6-1 and 6-2.

Freshman Justin Wain swept his match 6-0 and 6-1, followed by Puig winning 6-2 and 6-1. Wright shut out his opponent in both sets 6-0 and freshman Nikola Kilibarda ended strong, coming out on top 6-0 and then 6-2.

The Lions return to the court on Saturday, April 6, when both the men and women’s teams take on Ithaca College at home.
