This past week, the Trinity Men’s tennis team defeated Coast Guard 8-1 in its only match of the fall season. Despite losing one match in doubles, and only being up 2-1 before the singles matches, Trinity did not lose one of its six singles matches.
The number one doubles team, comprised of senior Ford Traff ’16 and sophomore Rex Glickman ’18, defeated their opponents in a one sided 8-1 victory. Glickman, who also played at number one for the singles team, defeated Coast Guard’s Mark Guentert 6-1,6-2. Traff, who played number two had a 6-4,6-1 victory.
Kyle Scheffers ’18 won his match at number three singles 6-3, 6-1, while Aaron Segel ’16 did not seem to break a sweat with a 6-2, 6-0 victory at the number four slot. Junior Jagger Riefler ’17 won a long a three-setter match with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 victory, ultimately dominating in the third set. Fellow junior Philip Winser ’17 won his line six match with a 6-2, 6-4 victory.
All in all, our Bantams played very well, only dropping one match to Coast Guard. The men’s tennis team started the year off strong, with a 1-0 record going into the spring season. The future looks bright for what is to follow this spring.
Be ready to keep an eye out for the men this spring, as they will be back in action starting Mar. 14 in their season opener against Bowdoin College.
If this weekend was any indicator for the future, it looks as if Men’s Tennis will have a great year.
