WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Catholic University men's tennis team fell to York College (Pa.) in the final intercollegiate match of the fall on Sunday.
The Cardinals battled in a tough 9-0 loss against the Spartans. The duo of junior Kyle Weber and sophomore Eric Macarski competed well in an 8-4 loss. Sophomore Frankie Fortunati and senior Ted Tiu teamed up in the second doubles for a strong performance but fell in similar fashion, 8-5. Junior Andrew Beiner and sophomore Dom Mazzeo dropped the third doubles 8-2.
Catholic fell in singles but performed well in the six singles matches. Fortunati and Weber represented the Cards in the first and second singles. They competed in close matches but fell with a score of 7-5, 6-5 for Fortunati and 6-1, 7-5 for Weber.
"The wins and losses don't reflect it, but we have been improving with each match. As a coach you can only ask that your players work hard and trust the coaching, they have done both." Said head coach Nitin Deodhar. "I am optimistic this will result in wins when we resume intercollegiate competition in the spring."
Catholic will return to action for their spring competition on Saturday, March 2 at Salisbury University.
