After winning two straight matches, both in conference, the Brooklyn College men’s tennis team dropped all singles and doubles flights en route to a 9-0 loss at home on the Roosevelt Courts against Hunter College on Saturday afternoon.

BC’s Justin Vasquez led off singles for his team, facing off against Hunter’s Nasser Ghaffar. Vasquez dropped the first set 6-1, and despite a better effort in the second set, Ghaffar finished off the No. 1 flight with a 6-4 win in the set.

Brooklyn’s Samuel Meyerovich and Jonathan Kim were both finished off 6-0, 6-0 in the No. 2 and No. 3 flights, respectively. Kevin Gryka went down in the No. 4 flight, 6-0, 6-1.

The Bulldogs finally won their first set when Chevaugn Mattis faced off against Hunter’s Ryan Hwang. Mattis secured the first set, 6-2, but Hwang countered and dominated the final two sets with two 6-1 victories.

BC’s Akash Jairam was swept in his No. 6 flight (6-0, 6-0), and the Bulldogs lost all three doubles flights 8-0 as well.

The Bulldogs dropped to 4-4 overall, but still hold a winning record in the City University of New York Athletic Conference (CUNYAC) at 3-2. Hunter improved to a perfect 8-0 overall record, and 5-0 in conference.

After having its Sunday afternoon match against Sarah Lawrence College postponed, BC played Baruch College yesterday evening, and the results can be found on the Brooklyn College Athletics website. BC will move on to play St. Joseph’s College – Brooklyn tomorrow at 4 p.m. at home before going on the road.
