The Siena men's tennis team snapped a seven-match losing streak with a convincing 6-1 triumph over Holy Cross Friday in Worcester. The Saints won five of the six singles matches and swept the doubles play.
Ryan Schmitz and Peter Colins teamed up for an exciting 8-7 win at top doubles over Nick Berrettini and Ryan Sullivan. Berrettini later rallied to knock off Schmitz at top singles in three-sets for the Crusaders' only point.
