Men's Tennis Loses to Coast Guard in NEWMAC Tournament First Round, 4-2

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., April 27, 2006 – Despite losing the doubles point, the Coast Guard Academy men’s tennis team defeated Springfield College, 4-2, this afternoon in a New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) first-round post-season tournament match at Coast Guard.

With the win, fourth-seeded Coast Guard, now 10-6, advances to the second round at Wheaton College on Saturday (Apr. 29) where it will take on top-seeded MIT at 10:30 a.m. Springfield, the No. 5 seed, ends its season with a 4-8 overall mark. SC finished 1-4 in NEWMAC play, 0-1 in the NEWMAC Tourney.

Springfield began the day very promisingly by winning the lone doubles point. The Pride’s No. 2 and No. 3 doubles team were victorious. At No. 2 doubles, junior Ethan Clime (Bristol, Maine) and sophomore Joe Lisi (Southbridge, Mass.) won their match, 9-7, over Coast Guard’s David Stump and Tom Brittingham.
