Men's Tennis Blanks Hampden-Sydney, 9-0
HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, Va. - The Bridgewater Eagles men's tennis team ended a more than 10-year skid against the Hampden-Sydney Tigers in a big way on Thursday afternoon by blanking the host Tigers by a 9-0 tally on the road.
At number two doubles, the tandem of Peter Hawkins and Christian Lynn earned a hard-fought 8-6 victory before the team of Mike Cable and Brent Floyd picked up an 8-3 victory at number three to hand the Eagles a commanding 3-0 heading to singles.
Hawkins got the Eagles to within a match of the victory with a 6-2, 6-1 win in top flight singles while Larsen gave Bridgewater the match victory with a 6-0, 6-3 triumph at number two.
Stack kept things rolling with a 6-2, 6-3 win at number three before Floyd was a 6-1, 6-1 winner at number four.
At number five, Lynn was victorious in the first set by a 6-3 score before being pushed to the tiebreaker in the second set before eventually prevailing by a 7-1 tally in the tiebreak.
Sophomore Sam Churchill claimed an easy 6-1, 6-1 win at number six to round out the shutout win for the Eagles.
Bridgewater has now won three matches in a row heading into the brief Easter Break.
The Eagles are back in action on Wednesday when they tangle with Roanoke. Start time is set for 4 p.m.
