Spring Break Wrapup

The Middlebury Men’s Tennis Team recently returned home following a successful spring break trip on the west coast. The Panthers played ten matches in six days, racking up an 8-2 record.

A 5-4 loss to Ventura Community College by Midd’s second team and an 8-1 loss to number one ranked Claremont were the only two hiccups during the trip for the Panthers.  

Freshman Palmer Campbell and Junior Brantner Jones
There were more than a few highlights from the trip. A dramatic come from behind win at the number twelve ranked University of Redlands was one of the most thrilling finishes of the week. Trailing 4-2 in the match with three matches on court, the Panthers fought back for a 5-4 victory capped by Zach Bruchmiller’s third set come back victory at number six singles.
