Men’s Tennis Wins Two of Three

In men’s tennis, Vermont held on to top the defending conference champion Hartford in a tight America East battle, 4-3, on Friday evening.

Then on Saturday the men defeated Fairleigh Dickinson 5-2. The win marks the Catamounts 4th win in a row. UVM won 4 of 6 singles matches, and took 2 out of 3 in doubles play. Highlights for the Catamounts again included wins by Zeljko Knezevic, Matt Spring, Griffin Maloney, and Jon Cooper in singles play, and the duos of Cooper/Knezevic and Tom Whittaker/Maloney won took their matches in doubles play.

For the third match of the weekend, Marist College visited the UVM Tennis Facility to take on the very hot Catamounts.

Unfortunately, Marsit blanked the Catamounts, winning 7-0. Vermont’s next match is at Sacred Heart on Friday, February 21st, at 5 p.m.
