Roundup: Men’s Tennis Drops Two, Rowing Cancelled

Men’s Tennis

Men’s tennis traveled to Florida for the weekend, beginning its travels on Friday in Tallahassee against Florida State, before moving to Coral Gables on Sunday for a test from the University of Miami.

The Eagles’ exploits against FSU were unsuccessful for the most part, losing all matches except for one. Conor Mullins bested the Seminoles’ Jack Haffey in the No. 6 spot.

The men fared similarly against Miami, losing 6-1, again. However, this time the lone point came in the doubles, as Hank Workman and Kyle Childree brought home one point for the Eagles.

Women’s Tennis

Women’s tennis made all of the same stops as the men, but happened to be a bit more successful in their matches. They bested FSU 4-3 on Friday afternoon. Jessica Wacnik and Lexi Borr continued their dynamic doubles run, stretching their overall record to 12-2.

The Eagles then won three of six matches in the singles competition, drawing on help from Asiya Dair, Borr and Emily Safron, who all walked away from FSU with wins.

Their winning ways ended at Miami, where they suffered the same fate as the men, but with two wins instead of one.

Borr and Wacnik brought claimed the victories in their singles’ matches, but lost when it came to the doubles.

Track and Field

Both the men’s and women’s track teams traveled to Raleigh, N.C., to partake in the Raleigh Relays, hosted by NC State. The meet was held on both Friday and Saturday, and signaled the start of outdoor track season.

One standout on the men’s side of events was James Newhouse, who slipped in under 31 minutes in the 10k. Collin Fedor did well in three total events, but notably ran a 59.5 second 400 meter dash.

For the women, Kristen McDonagh started the meet off well for the Eagles, and nearly missed out on a win in the high jump. The women’s 4×1500 relay team took home the win by five seconds, and the 4×400 relay team placed No. 7 overall at the meet.

Danielle Winslow and Isabelle Kennedy both reached personal records in the 1500 meter.

Women’s Rowing

The rowing team did not compete in its planned Beanpot due to weather conditions. The rowing Beanpot is indefinitely postponed to a later date.
