The Middlebury Men’s Tennis Team swept conference opponent Conn College 9-0 yesterday afternoon in New London, Connecticut. The victory moved the Panthers to 8-2 on the year, as they remained undefeated in conference play.
Battling a swirling wind, the Panthers swept all three doubles lines to get the match headed in the right direction. The number one team of Brantner Jones and Andrew Lebovitz overcame a 6-4 deficit en route to a 9-7 victory. Doubles play was highlighted by the play of senior David Farah and junior Spencer Lunghino. The pair showed no trouble taking care of business after being moved up to number two doubles earlier in the week. The two played an aggressive, efficient brand of doubles cruising to an 8-3 victory. Filling in for the injured Derrick Angle, sophomore Zach Bruchmiller teamed up with Alec Parower for an 8-4 win at three doubles to complete the sweep.
The Panthers kept things rolling once singles play got under way. With Brantner Jones being moved up to number one singles, Middlebury dominated the Camels of Conn College throughout the singles lineup.
