Men’s tennis suffer crushing loss to 58th PSU

Jen Lee, Contributing Writer

The men’s tennis team struggled to match the power of Penn State on Feb. 8 at the Nittany Lions’ indoor facility in University Park, Pa. The No. 58 Nittany Lions took home a 7-0 victory over the visiting team, dropping the Orange and Blue to 0-2 for the season.

“It was a tough match,” Aidan Lynch ’14 said. “They’re a very good team but we saw some improvement from our first poor showing versus Saint Francis.  It’s good for us to get experience playing against a ranked team.”

The Nittany Lions improved to 6-0 with this sweep of the Bison, giving up zero sets to their opponent. The closest match of the day came in the doubles No. 3 spot, where Jonathan DeFrancesch ’15 and Scott Bernstein ’14 lost in an 8-6 decision to Penn State.

The match against St. Peter’s that was planned for Feb. 9 was cancelled.

The Bison will look to earn their first win tomorrow when they travel to Flushing, N.Y. to face Fordham and Queens College.
