Bulldogs Thrash Scarlet Knights
Feb. 10, 2006
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Apparently a return to the Elm City was all Yale men's tennis needed, as the team easily defeated Rutgers 7-0 on Fri., Feb. 10 in New Haven. After tough losses to NC State and North Carolina last weekend, every member of the team won their match in straight sets in the victory over the Scarlet Knights.
The Bulldogs got off to a blistering start in the doubles portion of the match. Playing at No. 1, Rowan Reynolds and Rory Green downed Tyler Deming and Jonathan Wanono, 8-4. Milosz Gudzowski and Jeff Dawson defeated Matt Fawcett and Arjun Vaidya in the No. 2 slot, and Chris Lawler and Michael Caldwell rounded out the doubles sweep in the No. 3 slot, defeating Gordie Milchutsky and Gabe Adams, 8-3.
In singles play, Yale did not surrender a single set to the Scarlet Knights, sweeping each match. Dawson and Lederman won their matches in particularly dominant fashion in the Nos. 2 and 6 slots, respectively. Dawson beat Wanono 6-4, 6-2 and Lederman swept Adams, 6-4, 6-3.
Yale returns to the courts tomorrow in New Haven to take on Army at 12:30 p.m.
