Home / News / Yellow Jackets post 6-3 win over HU

DAYTON, Ohio – Up against NCAA Division II Cedarville University, the HU men’s tennis (1-3) put up a good fight before dropping a 6-3 decision to the Yellow Jackets (1-0) Saturday afternoon at Five Seasons Sports Club.

The match, played inside due to inclement weather, started off with the hosts jumping out in front 4-2 in singles action after which HU notched one more win at No. 1 doubles to make for the 6-3 final. Rodrigo Manzo was the lone double winner for Coach Eckert’s crew.

After breezing past Ryan Shomo 6-1, 6-2 at #2 singles, Manzo teamed up with Ignacio Poncio at the top spot in doubles action to cruise to an easy 8-2 win over Shomo and Matt Brumbaugh. Dawid Baranowski notched the Foresters’ only other win at No. 4 singles where he handed Joel Clark 6-2, 6-1 loss.

Huntington will look to play their third match in four days by hosting Taylor University at 4:00 p.m. on Monday.
