Men’s Tennis remains undefeated on the early fall season after a 6-1 win over league opponent Rider in Schenectady. The Saints are now 3-0 on the season, the best start for Siena in men’s tennis history, according to available records.
“The men played great today they played with a purpose today,” said head coach Jeff Osborn. “The hard work is paying off.”
Peter Galante and Diego Lebron put up a fight on court three in doubles, but fell 6-2. Matt Bellino along with Guillermo Lopez Torres on court one and Sagar Bains with Alessandro Saglia on court two took the wins to give the Saints the doubles point. Siena led 1-0 in the match heading into singles.
Siena took five of the six singles courts and took the five courts won in straight sets. Freshman Sagar Bains was the clinching point for the Saints with his 6-1, 6-3 victory on court one. It was a hard fought battle on court three, but Cameron L. Kirkwood fell in three sets 6-2, 2-6, 12-10.
The men will head to New Haven, Connecticut for the ITA Regionals on Friday, October 20 and Saturday, October 21.
