    Tennis Teams Struggle

    The Seawolves (4-6) Men’s Tennis Team fell to the Black Knights 4-3 Friday evening in a hard fought match at West Point, NY. The Seawolves won three singles matches in the loss.

    At No. 1 singles, freshmen Quirijn Van Veen won 6-3, 6-3. Freshmen Jon Epstein came away with a victory at No. 5 singles. Playing at No. 3 singles, sophomore Youssef Fassi-Fehri edged his opponent in a three-setter, 2-6, 6-3, and 7-6.

    Splitting singles matches with the Black Knights was not enough to give the Seawolves the win as they dropped all three doubles. Van Veen, Epstein, Fassi-Fehri, along with teammates Nihal Advani, Ilan Shvartz and Alex Markovich only saw their efforts fall short in the doubles matches.

    The Seawolves (3-4) Women’s Tennis Team could not manage to overcome its Queens rival Red Storm, 6-1, Monday evening at Cunningham Park in a none-conferences game. Freshmen Claudia Sanua picked up the lone victory for the Seawolves in the loss. Sanua, who played at No. 4 singles, outlasted her opponent in a hard fight with three setters, 2-6, 6-2, and 10-8.

    The Seawolves could not pull off a victory in the rest of the matches though, as they dropped all three doubles matches and five singles. The men’s team will be back in action Wednesday, Mar. 28 when they travel to New Heaven and take on Yale.
