Men's Tennis Stumbles In Home Opener
The Eagles earned wins in first doubles and had two freshmen start their careers off right with wins in singles.
Last season, the Eagles struggled in doubles play, winning 12-of-39 doubles matches. Head coach Mark Spangler was pleased to see the first doubles team get the win today. Dan Fowler and Tyler Schultz battled to win their match 8-6. They trailed 40-love in the final game, but rallied to take it. Schultz helped earn the final point by defending an Abington smash, keeping the play alive and forcing an Abington error.
Freshmen Landon Walter took the No. 5 singles match in an 8-4 pro set, winning seven consecutive games. Freshman teammate Mitchell Weaver defeated his opponent 6-1, 6-2 in the No. 6 slot.
The Eagles next match is on Thursday at Lebanon Valley College.
