CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Not one Lesley University men's tennis player lost a set in a Lynx 9-0 victory over New England Collegiate Conference opponent Wheelock College on Tuesday evening. The Lynx improved to 5-2 (4-2 NECC) while the Wildcats dropped to 1-7 (1-4 NECC).
The highlight of the day was the #2 singles match up between Lesley's Nick Mattox (PASADENA, Md./Chesapeake) and Wheelock's Robert Venning (GREENFIELD, N.H./Con-Val Regional). Mattox took the match in straight sets 6-4, 7-5 but Venning fought hard to stay in the match. Mattox improved to 4-3 in #2 singles play.
David Newton (HAMDEN, Conn./Hamden) won his #1 singles match over Wilson Chang (LEE, Mass./Lee) 6-2, 6-3 and improved to 4-3 in that category.
In doubles play, all three duos won their matches handily with Newton and Alex Zhitnik (WEST HARTFORD, Conn./Conard) winning 8-2, Mattox and Christian Domingo (LOS ANGELES, Calif./College of the Canyons) winning 8-2, and Wheeler and Reeves winning 8-0.
